PITTSBURGH (AP) -New York Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado, bothered by an injured left knee, and right fielder Lastings Milledge, stricken by flu-like symptoms, were out of the lineup for Thursday night's game in Pittsburgh.
Delgado's knee was sore before he collided with a railing while trying to catch a foul ball Wednesday night. He was lifted in the eighth inning with what the team described as a bruised knee, though he said after the game it was hyperextended.
Manager Willie Randolph doesn't expect Delgado to be out long.
``It was sore. He bumped his knee inside the wall there, so we'll give him a day,'' Randolph said. ``It already was a little sore so he probably tweaked it. We'll see how he feels (Friday)'' in Washington.
Milledge, who has begun playing ahead of Shawn Green in right field, was scratched about 20 minutes before game time. Milledge was 2-for-5 with two runs scored and Delgado was 3-for-7 with a homer as the Mets won the first two games of the three-game series.
