The big news is that Jason Bay had a monster game with two home runs and 4 RBI’s. I will say that the Dodgers are a miserable team, so any success the Mets have in LA should be tempered by that fact. But it’s good to see Bay hitting the ball other than grounding out to shortstop.

Mike Pelfrey also had a solid start and didn’t get flustered with runners on base. He threw 6 shutout innings allowing 5 hits and 2 walks but he did hit two batters. I was surprised that the Dodgers didn’t retaliate even though it was clear that Pelfrey wasn’t trying to hit anyone.

The Mets can take the series with a win tomorrow night.

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.
