The Mets couldn’t get anything going on offense and Mike Pelfrey put them in hole by giving up 3 runs in the first inning. That’s a combination for a loss, which the Mets did tonight. It’s clear that the Mets aren’t even close to the class of team that the Rangers are right now. The Rangers completely overpowered the Mets and outplayed them in every facet of the game.
Surprisingly, Pelfrey recovered from his early trouble and stayed in the game for 6 innings and allowed 4 runs. I was expecting Pelfrey to completely fall apart after giving up 3 in the first but he didn’t.
On offense, the only player that had anything going tonight was Jason Bay. He was 3 for 4 with 3 singles and raised his season average to .241.
The Mets will be lucky to leave Texas with one win in this series. They look like the JV compared to the Rangers.
