Kaz Ishii’s first win in 8 months, Mike Piazza’s first RBI’s in 60 at bats, and all of a sudden the same Mets that looked so overmatched against the Braves earlier in the week have won 3 straight and are just 2 games out of first place.

Glowering Tom Glavine is facing the hot tempered Josh Beckett this afternoon, with Mike DeFelice getting the start catching for the former. I look forward to a crazed controversy over whether or not Glavine has a personal battery-mate.
