NEW YORK (AP) - Pedro Martinez pitched six sharp innings,
pinch-hitter Robinson Cancel got his first major league hit in
nearly nine years and the New York Mets beat the Texas Rangers 4-2
Sunday for a doubleheader split.
Billy Wagner ended his skid of three straight blown saves and
David Wright had three hits for his first multihit game in two
weeks for the Mets. Carlos Beltran followed up a homer and two RBIs
in the opener with a run-scoring single as New York took two of
three from Texas, perhaps giving Mets manager Willie Randolph a
reprieve from being fired.
