Nelson Figueroa earned his first major league win in five years, retiring 14 straight batters at the start and pitching his hometown New York Mets past the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on a foggy Friday. Carlos Delgado hit one of New York's three RBI singles and the Mets got a strong effort from their much-maligned bullpen to win their third straight.
Joe Smith worked around an error in a scoreless seventh and Aaron Heilman struck out two in a perfect eighth after blowing a two-run lead in Thursday night's 12-inning victory over Philadelphia. Billy Wagner got three quick outs for his first save this season. New York All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes came out after the fifth inning with tightness in his left hamstring.
