The New York Mets now hold a 7-3 lead in the game, thanks to a pair of two-run hits by second baseman Luis Castillo. The Orioles have scored on RBI singles by Ty Wigginton and Oscar Salazar and a run-scoring double by reserve catcher candidate Robbie Hammock, who was thrown out trying to stretch it into a triple.

Just got a report from Mets PR on the reason why starter Sean Green left the game in the first inning. He suffered a cracked fingernail on his pitching hand that apparently was affecting his grip on the ball.
