CHICAGO --Benny Agbayani from Hawaii hit two solo home runs, his first shots since connecting against the Cubs in Tokyo on opening day, and the New York Mets beat Chicago, 10-8, yesterday in a game delayed by rain three times for nearly 3 hours.

Agbayani also hit a sacrifice, and drove in three runs.

"I haven't hit the ball like that in a long time," said Agbayani, a former Hawaii Pacific University star.
