There was too much offense by the Mets to even cover it all in this recap. Jerry Manuel has to be very happy with what he saw today. He’s been looking for more offense from the Mets, and now we’ll see if they can be consistent with it.
Carlos Delgado went crazy today offensively. He set a Mets team record with 9 RBI’s. He was 3 for 5 with a double, two homers, one of which was a grand slam and the other was a three run shot.
Mike Pelfrey, the Mets’ starter, was shaky today after his three previous starts were very good. Pelfrey consistently had men on base but I liked the way he never let the game get completely out of hand. That’s a good sign. He went five innings giving up four runs on eight hits and four walks.
Fernando Tatis played first base and had two incredible diving plays but was charged with throwing errors on both plays. One of the plays should have been an error charged to Pelfrey who didn’t catch the ball.
