He was out of the lineup for the first time this season on Tuesday - the same day he told Rojas he felt he was beginning to snap out of his slump.''We had a little conversation last night after the game and he told me `Luis, I'm feeling really good,''' Rojas said. ''And every time he walked by me in the dugout, he was just reminding me. `I told you last night, I told you last night.''

Nimmo finished with three hits.''This was such a complete win, we had contributions from everybody,'' Alonso said. ''I think we've got more to come. It's still early. We've still got two-thirds of the season left.'' Seven pitchers combined on a 10-hitter for the Mets, who lost the first two games of the four-game series.

THE DEFENSE ISN'T RESTINGThe Mets' middle infield combination of second baseman Luis Guillorme and shortstop Andres Gimenez had another impressive night Wednesday.
