NEW YORK - Jose Reyes made a base running mistake that may have cost the Mets a chance to win their game earlier against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday evening at Citi Field.  But it was Carlos Beltran who made the difference as he crossed home plate with the winning run.The Mets 4-3 win in the 10th inning was something rare this season as they won their first game when trailing after seven innings.  And their eighth win in their last nine did have some dramatic moments when coming from behind. Jose Reyes once again tried stretching a run scoring double into a triple in the eighth and was easily thrown out.Perhaps the aggressive Reyes, the catalyst, trying to get the win, then, that cut the Braves lead to 3-2. But it was Reyes who sparked the rally in the 10th reaching base on an infield single and then stealing second. That led to Alex Cora drawing an intentional walk, pinch hitter Ramon Castro drawing a walk and then Beltran getting a walk-off walk for the win.“Good hitting and stupid base running,” said Reyes afterwards about that aggressive base running mistake. His manager Jerry Manuel knows Reyes makes things happen, so does Beltran who entered the game as the second leading hitter in the National League.Not easy for these Mets but another win that was interesting.  Beltran doubled, stole third and scored the tying run for the Mets in the ninth. “He can take over a game,” said Manuel about Beltran. “That’s basically what he did tonight.”“Historically these types of games of this fashion we don’t win,” said Manuel. But the Mets are finding ways to win games like this even against the arch rival Braves. Manuel may have been referring to how last year the Mets would not get a win of this fashion as Atlanta pitcher Jair Jurrjens took a four-hit shutout into the eighth inning.Then the double by Reyes, and once again Francisco Rodriguez (1-0) out of the pen throwing two scoreless innings and his first win as a Met. “Wins like this get you going,” said Rodriguez who pitched two innings for the first time since August 17, 2007 when he was with the Los Angeles Angels.Mike Pelfrey gave up two runs in seven strong innings. “He had his best stuff of the year,” said Manuel. “He was outstanding tonight. For Mike I thought this was his best performance with his best stiff,” he said.But the best stuff was to come, as the Mets 18-14 and holding first place in the NL East staged a comeback that had the 39,408 fans at Citi Field knowing well that games like this were hard to win last season.That Beltran steal in the ninth, he can do that,” said Manuel, adding that is the type of ballplayer the Mets have that can make things happen. More importantly, with Carlos Delgado possibly headed to the disabled list with a bad hip the continued strong play of Beltran is important.And a walk-off win via the walk is another way the Mets have found a way to win.e-mail Rich Mancuso:  Ring786@aol.com
