Carlos Beltran hit a three-run homer, Mike Pelfrey provided the latest dominant pitching performance and the New York Mets held down the Colorado Rockies 7-0 Sunday night to take a nine-game winning streak into the All-Star break.
Carlos Delgado added a two-run homer for the Mets, who were 5 1/2 games back in the NL East on July 4. But after a tumultuous first half that included the dismissal of manager Willie Randolph, New York will resume play Thursday at Cincinnati trailing division-leading Philadelphia by just a half-game.
The Mets' nine-game run is their best since April 16-25, 2000.
