Izzy gets win for ages

Steven Glasser and the ESPN Stats & Information crew come up with this gem regarding Jason Isringhausen's win in Thursday's comeback:

Izzy picked up the win for the Mets -- his first this season, and his first with the Mets franchise since June 8, 1999. On that day, as a starter, he pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing two earned for the win against the Blue Jays.

It marks the longest gap between wins by a pitcher for the Mets in franchise history (courtesy of Elias Sports Bureau):

Isringhausen, 11 yrs, 359 days, 1999-2011

Bob Miller, 11 yrs, 213 days, 1962-1974

David Cone, 10 yrs, 245 days, 1992-2003
