MARLINS 9, METS 7
Florida centerfielder Preston Wilson had yet to go yard in 24 home dates this season and was wondering if he'd ever hit one out at home again. He should have figured he'd break out against the Mets, against whom he had had two multihomer games since they traded him to the Marlins in the Mike Piazza deal in 1998. Sure enough, Wilson cleared the fence twice and drove in three runs in a wild victory. Since the trade, the stepson of Mets first base coach Mookie Wilson has hit 14 homers and driven in 38 runs against New York, his best numbers versus any opponent.
