Pelfrey 3-Hitter Lifts Mets Over Braves 6-3

Mike Pelfrey continued his second half success story with a complete game 3-hitter. He gave up three runs and had three strikeouts.

The offense came from a variety of sources tonight with Daniel Murphy hitting a two-run single in the first, David Wright with a homer in the fifth, and Fernando Tatis having another multi-hit game going 2 for 4 with an RBI and run scored.

The Mets hold the NL East lead with the Phillies topping the awful Nationals again.

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.
