Carlos Delgado turned boos into a standing ovation with his first two-homer game in almost a year, leading the New York Mets to a 6-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday. The Mets knocked out John Smoltz after four innings in his first shaky outing of the season and got a three-hit game from backup catcher Raul Casanova.
Delgado came into the game in a 3-for-34 slump and hadn't homered since April 8. After he hit his first solo homer in the third, "Don't Stop Believin'" blared over the public address system. Smoltz (3-2) came in having allowed just two runs in four games. He gave up more than that in the first 1 1-3 innings Sunday.
