The Mets finally got a win after four straight losses before they leave for St. Louis today. They got a very solid game from Mike Pelfrey going seven strong innings. He only gave up 5 hits and no walks with 6 strikeouts. Excellent game from Pelfrey and his second win in two starts. Don’t forget that Pelfrey got lit up in Colorado last September 1st for 6 earned runs over 4 innings. So this was a nice payback for him.
The Mets finally got some timely hitting too. Although there was some bizarre base running in the third inning. Jose Reyes and Luis Castillo got mixed up on a double steal or maybe a missed sign. It was hard to tell but Castillo took off from first while Reyes didn’t move from second. Pelfrey even scored on a botched rundown that you can see in the picture.
It’s a great win but feels a lot like 2009 when every win was cause for celebration.
