Tristan H. Cockcroft says not to panic too much over a number of top hitters getting off to slow starts.
Mets 10, Reds 4
David Wright hit a pair of two-run homers and Pedro Martinez won for only the second time since April 28 as the New York Mets beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-2 Thursday.
Jason Lane homered twice, driving in a career-high five runs for Houston, and Roy Oswalt improved to 13-0 against the Reds with an 11-2 victory.
Maybe the Mets should have spent a little more of that money on the bullpen.
Pedro Martinez lived up to his billing before the worst fear of every Mets' fan was realized, Jerry Crasnick writes.
