This one was a classic pitchers duel with Mike Pelfrey getting the best of Yovani Gallardo. Pelfrey went 7.2 shutout innings and finished off the game with some help from Sean Green and Francisco Rodriguez.
The only run of the game came on a rare RBI by Ryan Church to score Luis Castillo in the sixth inning. The Mets only had 5 hits off Gallardo who was excellent today throwing a wicked late-breaking curveball for much of the game including 12 strikeouts. Not surprisingly, 3 of those K’s were on David Wright.
The Mets break their five game losing streak and head to Pittsburgh for an afternoon make-up game tomorrow.
