Pirates 11 – Mets 6 June 4, 2009

The Pirates completed the sweep of the Mets returning the favor for the Mets sweep at Citi Field. Mike Pelfrey was absolutely awful with the worst performance by a Mets starter in two years. He went 3.2 innings giving up 9 runs (8 earned from a Daniel Murphy error). Pelfrey walked 4 and gave up 9 hits, just an abysmal job.

The Mets offense was pretty good putting up 6 runs, which is normally enough to win a game. Carlos Beltran back from the flu had 2 hits, a double and a home run. David Wright also had 2 hits after his second prolonged slump of the early season. Fernando Martinez had 2 hits as well with Ryan Church looming to come off the disabled list on Sunday. Martinez is trying to make a case to stay in the big leagues.

After the game Beltran told reporters that he is embarrassed by the Mets display in Pittsburgh in the three game series. He didn’t call anyone out in particular, which is good, but someone had to say something after this kind of disaster.
