The Mets finally lost in their eighth game of the road trip. It’s been an incredible run over the last week and a half. Mike Pelfrey gave up 2-run homers to Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson plus a run on a an infield ground ball in the first. His velocity was excellent but he just wasn’t fooling anyone today. The sinker and splitter weren’t moving as much as they normally do. Pelfrey takes the loss but got through 7 innings and gave up all 5 runs for the Yankees.

The Mets didn’t get the big offense that they’ve been getting on their recent run. They got 6 hits and 3 walks. All 3 runs were scored on Jose Reyes home runs. He led off the game with a homer and hit a 2-run shot in his second at-bat. That was it for the scoring. Angel Pagan had another nice game at the plate going 2 for 3 with a double. Oddly, he was caught stealing for the second straight game.

The Mets and Yankees will play the rubber game of the series tomorrow at Yankee Stadium.

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.
