ESPN's Game recap


Recommended Posts

It's a summury of the game. An interesting note is that it says the marlins are

10-4 when Banks starts at LF! Man, he has to become the starter.




MIAMI (AP) -- Rookie Dontrelle Willis baffled the Mets on Monday night, pitching a one-hitter to beat New York 1-0 behind a homer by Ivan Rodriguez.


Willis (6-1) allowed only a clean line-drive single to left by Ty Wigginton with one out in the fourth to win his fifth straight start.


Willis struck out eight and walked one. Wigginton was the only batter to reach against Willis, also drawing a walk with two outs in the first.


After beating Anaheim behind Steve Trachsel's one-hitter on Sunday, the Mets flew cross country and were no match for Willis.


The demonstrative 21-year-old with a high leg kick has allowed four earned runs in his last five starts. He drew a standing ovation as he came out for the ninth inning and was hugged by Rodriguez after the final out.


Rodriguez's homer in the fourth inning off Tom Glavine (5-7) gave the Marlins the only run they needed to win for the fifth time in seven games.


Glavine, who missed his last scheduled start with a sore left elbow, gave up just four hits and three walks in seven innings. He has lost five of six decisions.


Glavine, who threw 101 pitches, ran into trouble in the seventh when he allowed singles by Juan Encarnacion and Derrek Lee before retiring the next three hitters to get out of the jam.


Mets OF Jeromy Burnitz went hitless and is four hits shy of 1,000 of his career. ... Glavine is 15-13 in 32 career appearances against the Marlins. ... The Marlins are 10-4 when Brian Banks starts in left field. ... Lee, a 6-foot-6 first baseman, stole his 14th base of the season. ... The Marlins and Mets play six more times in the next 10 days. The Mets lead the all-time series 82-61.
