Beltran leads late rally
Mets 4, Dodgers 1
David Wright started the scoring on Friday with a first-inning RBI single. (Kevork Djansezian/AP)
Oliver Perez was solid all evening, but it looked as though his offense was a no-show. Limited to one unearned run through seven, the bats came alive in the eighth. Carlos Beltran went deep for the 18th time to lead the late surge and give Perez win No. 9.
