Delgado's double off Ryan Dempster (2-4) followed a leadoff walk to David Wright. Delgado scored on Green's two-out double for a 4-2 lead. Ruben Gotay and Jose Reyes added run-scoring singles in the five-hit inning.
Guillermo Mota (1-0) pitched out of an eighth-inning jam to gain his first major league win since serving a 50-game suspension for a positive steroid test.
Chicago's Carlos Zambrano, bidding for his major league-leading 15th win, left in the sixth inning because of heat-related cramping. He gave up two hits, including a homer to Ramon Castro, and tied a career high with seven walks in five-plus innings.
Mets starter Orlando Hernandez allowed two runs and five hits, including a sixth-inning homer to Derrek Lee.
