Mets Beat Los Angeles, 7-0

By Nicholas Stix

The Mets just completed their second consecutive shutout victory. Their pitchers have not given up a run in 25 innings. Forty-year-old Mets lefthander Tom Glavine (13-6), who had his curve ball working, pitched six and one-third innings, giving up only five hits and no walks, while striking out five batters. Glavine got his first win since August 5, and only his second since the All-Star break. That gave him 288 lifetime wins, tying him with Tommy John for 23rd on the all-time wins list. Among active pitchers, only Roger Clemens (347) and Greg Maddux (330) have more wins.
