Stupid Cubs: Mets 6, Marlins 2

A nice start for Pedro Martinez after two consecutive stinkers. With John Maine on the disabled list and Jon Niese an unknown quantity, the Mets could really use Pedro to string together a bunch of solid outings as the last month of the season unfolds.

Kudos to Nick Evans, who isn't much of a hitter but sure looked like one today. Evans hit his first career homerun to tie the game in the third, and practically willed David Wright to follow him with a homerun of his own.

The Mets used five relievers and none of them allowed a run, which must be some kind of record. For them. This season.

2pm start on Labor Day afternoon as the Mets roll into Milwaukee. Santana versus Sheets, should be a good one.
