Carlos Delgado set a New York Mets record with nine RBIs Friday afternoon to lead the good guys to a 15-6 whopping of the New York Yankees in the first game of a day-night, cross-borough doubleheader.
Delgado, filling the DH role for the Mets for the day game at Yankee Stadium, went 3-for-5 with a grand slam, a three-run homer and a two-run double. The previous Mets record for RBIs by a single player was eight, set up Dave Kingman on June 4, 1976.
Starter Mike Pelfrey lost his no-hit bid in the first inning by giving up a two-out single to Alex Rodriguez. That advances the NoNoHiiters.com count to 7,398 Mets games without a no hitter.
