Mets 6 – Orioles 4 June 16, 2009

The Mets got a solid start from Mike Pelfrey. He cruised through the first four innings easily. And I thought he was on his way going deep into the game. He ran into a little trouble in the fifth inning and some more in the sixth, giving up 2 runs. It seemed like he ran out of gas which is surprising for this time of the season. But his start was good enough to keep the Mets in the game.

Sean Green went 1.2 innings of scoreless ball. He’s been fantastic lately and hasn’t given up a run since May 15. He had about a month, starting at the end of April, where he was very inconsistent but he’s really found himself.

The Mets offense benefitted from 3 Orioles errors. But give them credit that they were able to make the Orioles pay for the errors. The Mets had 3 unearned runs in the game. Alex Cora was 3 for 5 hitting leadoff again. It was good to see him get something going. He was 1 for his last 15 at-bats coming into the game.

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.
