Mets 7- Phillies 4 May 1, 2009

I didn’t particularly like what I saw from Mike Pelfrey tonight but he did enough to win. He went 5.1 innings giving up 3 runs, but I didn’t like that he had 4 walks and 0 strikeouts. I also didn’t like that he had 104 pitches in 5.1 innings. He was actually better at the plate than on the mound. He was 1 for 2 with 2 RBI’s.

On offense Daniel Murphy got things going in the first inning with a 2-run homer off Chan Ho Park. The Mets were beneficiaries of 8 walks from Phillies pitchers on the night. A good sign was that David Wright was 2 for 4 with a double, an RBI, and a walk. He needed a night like that badly. Of course, Fernando Tatis was 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored. He just keeps on hitting in a tough role of not getting regular playing time. He looks pretty comfortable at first base too.

Once again, the Mets didn’t score runs late in the game. They didn’t score a run after the fifth. That’s been a recurring theme this season but it didn’t come back to bite them tonight.

The Mets get the important first game of the series in Philly. Tomorrow’s game is the Fox game of the week.
