Mets: Have gone 17-6 when Armando Reynoso has started. His last shutout came against Florida on June 5, 1997. The team has hit 14 homers in its last seven games.

Astros: Craig Biggio's first-inning single was the 1,660th of his career, moving him into second place on the team's all-time list. First-base coach Jose Cruz is the team's career singles leader with 1,937.
