Easley's late blast gives Mets seventh straight victory

As my mind was recalling several great Damion Easley late-game moments from 2007, I was hoping Damion could continue to put those memories in my mind. Of course, with the bases empty and two outs with no score in the bottom of the eighth, Easley had no problem with launching the pitch over the left-center field wall to give the Mets the lead against the Rockies. Last year he did this on several occasions in the same exact spot.

Billy Wagner had no difficulty closing the game, as he got hitters to swing at high, lasering, 98-mph fastballs out of the zone.

You never know what Oliver Perez is going to do, but lately he has done his job. He went 4 2/3 innings before giving up a hit, and was removed with nobody out in the seventh inning.
