The Mets lost a tough one behind a solid game by Mike Pelfrey. He went 7 innings and only allowed 2 runs. The Mets just couldn’t get anything going against Paul Maholm. He threw 7 scoreless innings. And when they did get something going, it was sabotaged like when Daniel Murphy got picked off second base. It always boggles my mind when guys with no speed wander too far off second base. It was another stupid play by Murphy.

The Mets bullpen didn’t look great either. Manny Acosta gave up 3 hits in 0.1 innings and Tim Byrdak walked in a run.

The Mets split the series with the Pirates and head to Atlanta for three games.

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.
