Mike Pelfrey got bombed and lost a game for the first time since May. He only went four innings and gave up five runs in the fourth inning. Joe Smith also had a bad inning in the eighth, giving up two runs on two walks and a hit.
Marlon Anderson had a big offensive game going 3 for 4 with 2 runs. That’s good to see because he’s looked completely lost at the plate recently. Anderson also looked smoother in left field than he has before. He must be shagging some fly balls because he looked more comfortable out there last night.
Damion Easley hit a big three-run, pinch hit home run in the seventh to get within one run of the Marlins but it wasn’t enough. The Mets did get a nice rally going in the ninth as well but they couldn’t sustain it long enough to tie or win the game.
The Mets are off on Thursday and in Houston on Friday with Pedro on the mound.
