Mike Pelfrey came back to the Mets with a thud, giving up 5 runs in 6 innings. He didn’t get any help from Angel Pagan in center field. Pagan had a throwing error and made a terrible diving attempt at a line drive by Doug Davis that went for a double. Elmer Dessens threw some gas on the fire too, giving up 2 runs in the seventh inning, including a solo home run.
The Mets offense wasn’t terrible. They actually managed to get two extra base hits of their nine total hits. That’s an explosion for this weak team. Anderson Hernandez and Luis Castillo had two hits apiece.
The Mets did score two in the ninth but it wasn’t even close to enough for a comeback.
The Mets are back to their losing ways after a brief respite yesterday.
