Mets' lucky number seven

After a 90-minute rain delay at Shea Stadium last night, the Mets and Brewers got going on a soggy field. Veteran starter Tom Glavine was sharp, striking out 11 batters over 6 innings. Xavier Nady provided an early lead with his second HR of the season. Carlos Delgado drove in 2 runs, the second on a force play with the bases loaded in the 5th. After Glavine departed, the Brewers tagged Aaron Heilman for 2 runs in the 7th, setting the stage for Billy Wagner's save opportunity in the 9th. When he struck out Brewers' slugger Carlos Lee for the final out, the Mets had their 7th win (4-3) in a row. With an 8-1 record, they've equaled their best-ever start dating back to 1985. The magic is back at Shea Stadium.

Next game: Saturday, April 15 @ Shea, 1:10 pm start on SNY & WFAN, Steve Trachsel (1-0) vs. Tomo Okha (0-1)

* In Minnesota, the Yankees lost 5-1 to the Twins; Mike Mussina took the loss; this, combined with the Red Sox's victory over the Mariners, left the Yanks (5-5) 2 games out of first place.
* In Atlanta, the Braves edged the Padres 5-4; they remain 3.5 games behind the Mets.
* Barry Bonds has "10 to 12 bone chips floating" in his left elbow, which he revealed is swollen "almost twice the size" of his other elbow. "I'm going to keep playing until it blows up," Bonds said in an exclusive interview with "If I have to have a procedure, then I'm done. Finished. That would be it."

This is getting a little crazy-very strange feeling for a Mets fan-
So did you end up going to the Black Crowes?
