7,458: Delgado’s eighth-inning blast leads Mets to 4-2 win over Brewers

Carlos Delgado blasted an eighth-inning homer over the right field wall Monday to lead the New York Mets to a 4-2 comeback win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

With the Philadelphia Phillies loss to the Washington Nationals, the Mets now hold a two-game lead in the N.L. East.

Mets starter Johan Santana pitched six innings, giving up two earned runs and seven hits while striking out 10. He lost his no-hitter in the first inning when J.J. Hardy tripled to left, making it 7,458 New York Mets games without a no-no.

Luis Ayala got the save with a perfect ninth inning.
