Pelfrey CG Leads Mets Over Astros 9-1

It’s really amazing how Mike Pelfrey has progressed this season, going from 2-6 to start the season to 13-8 now. He threw his second consecutive complete game tonight, the first such occurance since Bret Saberhagen in 1995. He only gave up one run in the ninth inning on six hits with no walks and six strikeouts, another incredible performance.

The big offense came from Carlos Delgado hitting two 3-run homers in the game. Jose Reyes was 3 for 4 including a triple and a double with 2 runs and 2 RBI’s.Ryan Church was 2 for 4 in his third game back from the DL. And Luis Castillo took and o-fer in his return and heard about it from the crowd. Argenis Reyes and Damion Easley have become fan favorites here, so taking away their playing time is going to draw some boos for Castillo.

The Mets hold the NL East lead going into Philly tomorrow night with a great win.

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.
