The Mets put a third straight beat down on the Reds after the announcement that Carlos Beltran was traded. Honestly, I was expecting a let down tonight but the Reds poor fielding and a big game from Mike Pelfrey kept that from happening. Pelf got a complete game and didn’t walk anyone. He looked smooth and in control throughout the game. It’s amazing that he can’t replicate that type of performance more frequently.

The Mets also got a huge game from David Wright going 2 for 4 with a HR and 4 RBI’s . Daniel Murphy also went 4 for 5 and Lucas Duda hit his second home run.

The Mets have the chance tomorrow for the rare four game road sweep in Cincy before leaving for Washington.
