Mike Pelfrey was the story of the night. He threw his third career complete game allowing 1 run on 5 hits and no walks. The only run he allowed was a solo shot by Mark Trumbo. The shot was legitimate too. It was an opposite field homer to the deepest part of right center field. Otherwise, Pelfrey was completely in control and it was the third straight game that he didn’t walk anyone.  Terry Collins allowed him to go 123 pitches deep and it was a tremendous showing.

The Mets offense was keyed by four stolen bases against Dan Haren. He was clearly rattled by the Mets running wild against him. The Mets had a collection of hits to score as usual. But the big hit for the Mets came from Carlos Beltran. He hit a 2-run homer in the fifth inning that appeared to go over Shea Bridge. It was a bomb!

The Mets and Angels will play the rubber game of the series tomorrow afternoon.

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.
