The Mets won their fourth game in a row and moved to 5.5 games behind the Rockies in the wild card race. Mike Pelfrey had a second straight solid start going 6.1 shutout innings. Hopefully, this is the beginning of some consistency from him.
Daniel Murphy, David Wright, and Alex Cora had two hits apiece tonight to lead the attack. Jeff Francoeur had a single and another RBI. But he also got hit on the hand that looked like it swelled up immediately. I would think that the Mets crack medical staff is looking at that tonight. I hope they know how to use the x-ray machine so they can check for some broken bones.
I’ll be at the game tomorrow night so my post-game wrap up will be a little late.
