The Mets tonight start a 10-game road trip after a disappointing loss against the Cardinals.  One thing that is different about tonight, the team is getting David Wright back.  With the Mets all-star third baseman in the lineup, he came through in a big spot late for the Mets.

Mike Pelfrey had yet another inconsistent outing.  Pelfrey went 6 innings, gave up 4 ER’s on 5 hits, and had 3 K’s.  Pelfrey had the lead in the 6th until Gaby Sanchez hit a solo HR to tie the game at 4 apiece.   Jose Reyes continues to hit, as he got two hits tonight.  That adds to his multi-hit games total this year.  He now has 45.  That is very impressive!   In his return from the DL, David Wright went 2-4 with 2 RBI double’s. The Mets also got RBI hits from Carlos Beltran, Angel Pagan, Ronny Paulino, and Daniel Murphy.   Murphy also give the Mets the go-ahead run as he hit an RBI double to bring Wright home.

The Mets continue their 3-game series against the Marlins tommorrow night as the Mets send Chris Capuano (8-9, 4.16 ERA) to the hill against Clay Hensley (1-2, 2.12 ERA).  Game time is 7:10 EST.

I have been a Mets blogger for almost two years now. I got my first start as a contributor to the Rising Apple in March of 2010. In November of 2010, i decided that i needed to try and get a better position at another blog. That's when i found Mets Merized Online. I have been there since then, and I am fortunate enough to be writing for such a great Mets blog, and working with such great writers. Several of my posts have been featured on blogs like Kerel Cooper's On The Black, and Matthew Cerrone's MetsBlog.
