Glavine's 279th

It was all good last night at Shea, as Tom Glavine, Duaner Sanchez and Jorge Julio combined for a 3-hit. 6-0 shutout over the Pirates to sweep the two-game series. Xavier Nady drove in 4 runs, poking his 7th HR to break open the game in the 7th. And David Wright snapped out of his slump with a 4 for 5 outing at the plate.

Some Glaine stats:
* He won the 279th game of his career.
* He struck out 10 batters in 7 solid innings.
* With 2,391 careers Ks, he's 6 away from surpassing Sandy Koufax.
* He laid down his 194th career sac bunt, an MLB record.
* He's batting .400.
* He's gone 6-plus innings in his last 22 starts.
* He's 4-2, with 41 Ks in 46 innings and a 1.94 ERA.

The Phillies (14-14) remain 5 games behind the Mets (19-9) in 2nd-place, as they swept the Braves (12-16), who begin a 3-game series tonight at Shea.

Next game: Friday, May 5 vs. the Braves at Shea, 7:10 pm start on SNY & WFAN, Steve Trachsel (2-2, 4.73) vs. Kyle Davies (2-2, 4.70)
