Albuquerque 8, Las Vegas 5 It was a tough night for Chris Schwinden, who was knocked around for four runs in the first inning, and this left the 51s in a defecit that they would never look back from.

Mets Card of the Week: 1989 Keith Hernandez

1989 TOPPS BOX-BOTTOM KEITH HERNANDEZ Box-bottom cards are Spinal Tap-ian in both name and concept. They are the 18-inch Stonehenge of cards. These cards go to 11.
