Go figure.

Kaz Ishii hadn't won since August 29th of last season (against the Mets). Dontrelle Willis was 8-1 in his last nine, undefeated at home, and undefeated against the Mets in his career. That's why you can't make predictions when it comes to baseball (but you can make prophecies and give yourself a monacre like Metstradamus and get away with it).

The bats also woke up in the Mets 6-1 victory. Fourteen hits (three each by Miguel Cairo and Mike Piazza), and eight off Willis, who wasn't particularly bad but wasn't quite Dontrelle, combined with a nice performance by Ishii all bring the Mets to within 2 games of the first place Marlins and Braves who also lost.

A win on Sunday and it's time for the lawn jockey parade.
