7,364: Beltran’s 13th-inning blast boosts Mets

Carlos Beltran hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 13th inning Tuesday night to lead the New York Mets to a well-needed 5-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Starter Mike Pelfrey pitched well enough to earn a win (8 innings, 5 hits, 1 earned run) but Billy Wagner blew his save opportunity in the ninth. Instead, Claudio Vargas, whose been settling well into a long relief role since Pedro Martinez’s return, got the W.

Our No hitters killed by first at bat page earned another update tonight, as Pelfrey gave up a leadoff single to Chris Young singled to center. That put the NoNoHitters.com count to 7,384 New York Mets games without a no hitter.
