Glavine Gets 250th As Mets Roll 5-0

Art Howe thought Thursday's cancellation, due a large power outage, came at the wrong time and could have a negative impact on any momentum his team had gained. He learned pretty quickly it didn't. Veteran Tom Glavine got his 250th career win, only the ninth left-hander to do so, and Jason Phillips and Jose Reyes each hit solo homers as the New York Mets defeated to Colorado Rockies 5-0 on Friday evening inside Shea Stadium.

Cliff Floyd had three hits and Ty Wigginton contributed two RBI doubles to help the Mets win for the third straight game.

Tom Glavine (8-11) pitched six innings of shutout ball to earn the victory.

Grant Roberts and Mike Stanton combined to close out the game by throwing the final three innings, allowing just one hit.

Ty Wigginton doubled into deep left in the fourth against Colorado starter Darren Oliver (10-8), plating left fielder Cliff Floyd, and put the Mets ahead 1-0.

In the sixth, a solo homer by Jose Reyes to lead it off , his second, and a two-run shot by Jason Phillips, his ninth, gave New York a 4-0 advantage. Wigginton's second double in the bottom of the eighth capped the scoring.

Darren Oliver tossed 5 1/3 innings, allowing five hits and three runs while walking one and striking out one.

Jason Phillips shattered his bat in the eighth and it struck home plate umpire Justin Klemm on the side of the head. He walked off holding a bandage to his head and he would later receive stitches for the cut.

Following the 10 minute delay, second base umpire Tony Randazzo move behind the plate to finish the contest.
