Mets ride two Benitez balks to 12-inning win vs. Giants

Armando Benitez committed two balks -- the last of which allowed the tying run to score -- and gave up a game-winning solo homer to Carlos Delgado in the Giants' 5-4 loss to the Mets in 12 innings.

After the Giants went ahead 4-3 in the top of the 12th, Benitez walked Reyes to lead the bottom half. Reyes moved up on a balk and then went to third on a sacrifice. Reyes stayed at third when Carlos Beltran grounded out but then was waved home when Benitez was called for his second balk. Benitez then gave up Delgado's winning home run.
