The Mets barely came away from this series with one game. Jose Reyes couldn’t play tonight with a strained lower back that happened during batting practice. Once again, Mike Pelfrey didn’t have it tonight. He gave up 4 runs in 4.2 IP and a whopping 12 hits. The bullpen took over and held on pretty well. Although Francisco Rodriguez made it interesting with the winning run on base in the ninth during his four out save.

The Mets offense was decent with 10 hits and no walks. David Wright and Jesus Feliciano both had 2 hits in the game. Both of Wright’s hits were doubles off the wall and he had 2 RBI’s.

The Mets lose the series but were helped out by some shoddy Marlins defense that kept them in the game tonight. They had a ridiculous 4 errors that accounted for 2 of the Mets runs. Waiting out the rain delay was well worth getting the win tonight.
