Edgardo Alfonzo, who has picked up where he left off before going on the DL in early August, homered as well, and so did Jeromy Burnitz and recently recalled Ty Wigginton.
Pedro Astacio overcame one bad pitch to Mike Lowell, who hit a three-run home run on that offering, to pick up his twelfth win of the year. Steve Reed pitched one inning, and minor leaguer Pedro Feliciano pitched the last two innings in his first ever major league appearance.
Notes-Mo Vaughn, Alfonzo and Burnitz all had two hits apiece in the game and the Mets had 13 hits overall.
