Seo Gets Support as Mets Smack Texas 8-2

He says he doesn't like the designated hitter role while the Mets are in American League parks. Yea. Sure. Cliff Floyd went 3-for-5 with 5 RBIs and thumped his thirteenth homer of the year in support of Jae Seo, who pitched seven solid innings to earn the win.

The Mets (28-35) took an early two run lead in first after Roger Cedeno and Timo Perez began the game with consecutive singles again Texas start Victor Santos (0-1). Roberto Alomar sacrificed both runners up a base before Cliff Floyd lined a single into right field that scored both.

Texas (26-37), after ending a nine game losing skid on Tuesday night with a 9-7 victory, cut the lead in half with an Einar Diaz single in the second off Mets' starter Jae Seo (4-2). Diaz's sacrifice fly in the sixth drove in the second Rangers' run.

Jeromy Burnitz's double in the fourth – his first hit in his previous twenty-four at bats – scored Alomar to add another run.

Tony Clark thumped his eighth homer of the year to begin the fifth and back-to-back singles by Cliff Floyd and Jeromy Burnitz plated two more runs for a 6-1 New York lead.

Floyd's two run home run in the seventh added two more runs.

Jae Seo pitched seven innings allowing eight hits, two runs, and one walk while fanning six. The right-hander has allowed more than three earned runs just three times in his twelve starts this season.
