The Mets tonight start a 10-game road trip after a disappointing loss against the Cardinals. One thing that is different about tonight, the team is getting David Wright back. With the Mets all-star third baseman in the lineup, he came through in a big spot late for the Mets.
Mike Pelfrey had yet another inconsistent outing. Pelfrey went 6 innings, gave up 4 ER’s on 5 hits, and had 3 K’s. Pelfrey had the lead in the 6th until Gaby Sanchez hit a solo HR to tie the game at 4 apiece. Jose Reyes continues to hit, as he got two hits tonight. That adds to his multi-hit games total this year. He now has 45. That is very impressive! In his return from the DL, David Wright went 2-4 with 2 RBI double’s. The Mets also got RBI hits from Carlos Beltran, Angel Pagan, Ronny Paulino, and Daniel Murphy. Murphy also give the Mets the go-ahead run as he hit an RBI double to bring Wright home.
The Mets continue their 3-game series against the Marlins tommorrow night as the Mets send Chris Capuano (8-9, 4.16 ERA) to the hill against Clay Hensley (1-2, 2.12 ERA). Game time is 7:10 EST.
