The Mets came out on top of this one in 11 innings on a solo shot way out into the Pepsi porch by Ike Davis. That was a jump out of your seat moment but Mike Pelfrey was outstanding again through 9 innings. He only gave up 5 hits, 1 run, and no walks, with 6 strikeouts. It’s a shame that it went to extras and he didn’t get the win or complete game.

Other than Davis’ big blast to win it, the Mets as a team had 9 hits and 1 walk. David Wright was 2 for 4 with a double and is up to a respectable .283 avg. now. Angel Pagan was 2 for 5 with a triple and a stolen base. He continues to make plays every single day. And Jose Reyes was 2 for 4 with a big home run to left field to tie it in the seventh. The home run barely made it out and was reviewed. It was initially called a in play but after review it was ruled a home run.

These kind of games are my favorites to watch. I love the pitching duels. Great way to start the home series against the Pads.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
