Mets Marled in Miami

There's not much to say about the Mets' 5-1 defeat to the Marlins yesterday, other than Pedro Martinez lost his first game of the season (5-1), the Mets managed only 2 hits and David Wright didn't play. He had back spasms. That's an odd one for a 23-year-old. He doesn't even know how it happened, but Wright's expected to play today. Jose Valentin spelled him at 3B.

Guess who's back in 2nd place? The Braves (25-23), who beat the Cubs, 6-5, passed the Phillies (24-23), losers to the Brewers, 5-4. The Phils have dropped 8 out of their last 10. The Mets (28-19) lead the AL East by 3.5 games.

Next game: Saturday, May 27, Mets vs. Marlins at Dolphin Stadium, Tom Glavine (7-2, 2.48) vs. Dontrelle Willis (1-5, 5.12), 1:20 pm start on FOX & WFAN. "El Duque" Hernandez will make his Mets' debut on the mound tomorrow.

Around the Horn

• Derek Jeter's infield single in the 4th inning was the 2,000th of his career. The Yanks lost to the Royals, 7-6.
• D-Backs' RH Brandon Webb became the 1st pitcher in MLB to win 8 games. He shutout the Reds, 3-0.
• Barry Bonds is stuck on 714 HRs. Read my brother Barry Bloom's coverage of the Giants' 9-0 victory over the Rockies.
