As Jim Baumbach details, it was a big night for Jose Reyes, who bunting for a hit, lining a triple to the right-centerfield wall, stealing two bases and scoring three runs.

         There was more than a bit of drama before the game with everyone talking about former slugger Darryl Strawberry's recent visit to the Mets clubhouse. A Mets official denied that some team memebers were so upset with Strawberry that they had asked him to be banned from the clubhouse.
