Game Story

FLUSHING, New York (Ticker) -- The New York Mets got right at the expense of a team that has seen almost everything go wrong. Tyler Yates allowed one run in 5 2/3 innings and Ty Wigginton homered and drove in two runs as the Mets ended a three-game slide with a 4-1 triumph over the Montreal Expos, who have lost eight straight games. Yates (1-1) picked up his first major league win with a solid effort, scattering five hits and three walks. He helped the Mets bounce back after a disappointing sweep at the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates. "I accomplished what I wanted to do tonight," Yates said. "I'm a rookie and I want to show the team that they can have confidence in me. I want to go out there and give them a quality start." "I'm happy for him," Mets catcher Mike Piazza said. "It was nice to help him out back there. He had a few control problems, but he got the outs when he needed." Unlike his first start, when the bullpen lost a 2-0 lead, the 26-year-old righthander got great relief help. John Franco escaped a jam to end the sixth, Mike Stanton tossed two scoreless innings and Braden Looper worked around three hits in the ninth for his third save. "I got a couple of quick outs and then I put some balls where I didn't want to," Looper said. "It wasn't the way I would write it up, but I got the big out when I needed it." Wigginton hit his second homer of the season leading off the fourth inning against Montreal starter Tomo Ohka (0-3). New York built an early 4-0 lead, and that was plenty against a Montreal team that has scored just 20 runs in 13 games. The Expos had their chances in this one but went 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Montreal, which is in the midst of its longest losing streak since dropping nine in a row to close the 2000 season, is 6-for-75 with runners in scoring position this year. Ohka allowed four runs - three earned - and six hits in four innings. The Expos have combined for one run in the righthander's three three appearances this season. Sun-Woo Kim, Chad Cordero and Rocky Biddle held New York in check over the final four innings, but the Expos were unable to rally. "We're just not scoring runs," Expos manager Frank Robinson said. "We're not getting the clutch hits. We're not producing. We're getting some decent opportunities, but we're not driving the ball or getting the key hits." "We're putting a lot of pressure on ourselves," Montreal shortstop Orlando Cabrera added. The Mets got a sacrifice fly from Wigginton and a run-scoring double from Ricky Gutierrez in the second inning and added a run in the third on Karim Garcia's solo homer. "Anytime you get swept, you want to get right back out there," said Wigginton, whose team dropped three in a row to Pittsburgh over the weekend. "Tonight we were able to get the runs early and let Tyler settle in." Montreal put two on in the fourth, fifth and sixth. In the ninth, the Expos loaded the bases on three two-out singles, but Looper retired Tony Batista on a bouncer to shortstop. Montreal's Terrmel Sledge was hitless in his first 22 at-bats of the season, a drought he ended with a single in the ninth.
