Your nightly Wrap & Recap

Mets pull to .500 by a hair (or a Reyes head-first slide)
It took 12 innings but the New York Mets pulled out a win at Shea Stadium over the Philadelphia Philies. John Maine went 6 innings, only allowing 1 ER on 5 hits in factoring as a no decision. Ryan Howard hit his second home run of the season. [Box]

The Brewers hot streak sniffed out by a Harang-a-tang
The Milwaukee Brewers lost their first series of the season, as Aaron Harang went 8 innings, allowing only 1 ER on 5 hits and striking out 3. Prince Fielder is still homer-less. The big blow offensively for the Reds was Edwin Encarnacion’s 2-run home run in the 7th inning off Carlos Villanueva. [Box]

The Baltimore Orioles can return to their normal state now
Kevin Millwood stopped the Orioles 6 game winning streak, their longest in 2 years. Micheal Young went 2 for 3 with an RBI and stolen base, while C.J. Wilson notched his 2nd save. To show it was no fluke, the Rangers also won the 2nd game of the doubleheader. [Box]

Yes, Hideo Nomo is still collecting tender from a Major League franchise
Alex Rodriguez hit his 2nd home run of the season, but it shouldn’t really count since it was against Hideo Nomo. Nomo-son went 3 innings in relief in last night’s ballgame, a 6-1 Yankee victory that brought them to 5-5 on the season. Andy Pettite went 6 and 2/3 innings allowing only 1 earned run for the victory. [Box]
