Series at a glance:
Perez, Wright thrive for Mets
Oliver Perez picked a great time to throw one of his best games of the season. Perez tossed seven scoreless innings while matched against elite righty Brad Penny, and David Wright provided both a homer and a pair of defensive gems as the Mets took Game 1 of the three-game set.
