7,392: Mets win second straight to inch back to .500

The New York Mets rallied for fine runs in the second inning Friday night to overcome an early deficit and beat the Colorado Rockies 7-2 for the team’s second straight victory.

The Mets are back at .500 and now trail the first-place Philadelphia Phillies by just 4 1/2 games.

John Maine gave up two runs in the first but settled in to yield no more. He gave up just six hits over 6 2/3 innings – starting with an opening single to left by the Rockies’ Willy Taveras. That bumped our NoNoHiitters.com count to 7,392 New York Mets games without a no hitter and marked the 901st time a potential Mets’ no hitter was killed by the first at-bat (Click here for more details.)

Joe Smith, Pedro Feliciano and Aaron Heilman finished out the game to give Maine his seventh victory of the season.
