Dan Wright muzzled the Mets bats pretty well, not allowing a runner to reach second base after Mike Piazza doubled in the second, until he gave up a solo home run to Piazza in the seventh inning that tied the game at 1-1.
Leiter made his second mistake in the eighth when he threw a pitch in an area where Aaron Rowand could hit it hard. Rowand hit a double over Roger Cedeno, who appeared to have turned the wrong way when the ball was hit, and Royce Clayton, who had walked earlier in the inning, went to third. At that point Bobby Valentine came out and brought in Scott Strickland. Graffanino decided this was his night though, and singled in Clayton.
Antonio Osuna came in and recorded his second save in as many nights in the ninth.
-The Mets have an off day on Thursday before starting their series against the Yankees on Friday. Steve Trachsel will face Andy Pettittite, who will be making his first start since April.
