Post Game Recap, Game 14. Mets win 4-0

  •  Mike Pelfrey extended his scoreless innings streak to 19 innings.
    • He threw 7 innings, 3 hits, 3 walks, 6 k's.
      • His splitter was very effective tonight and has been the key to his success
  •  Welcome back Jose Reyes 
    • He had 4 hits, and really set the tone with his 2-run Triple. 
      • Also stole a base in the 8th inning
    • Fernando Tatis hit a 2-run pinch hit HR in the 8th to secure the game
    • D Wright heard some boo-birds after going 0-4
      • Jeff Francoeur was also hitless (extends his streak to 0-18)
      • Ike Davis was 0-3 with a walk and two strike outs
    • R Igarashi injured his hamstring on a bunt play in the 8th inning, and was relieved by Fernando Nieve
      • Nieve worked in his 10th game tonight (out of 14)
    • F Rodriguez walked two batters in the 9th, but escaped unscathed 
    • Defensive play of the game was a pick off by Henry Blanco, throwing behind the runner on 2nd to end the 5th inning
    Overall another very crisp game. The Cubs right now look like the Mets did a few days ago; life-less. Mets try to win three games in a row tomorrow night, with a match-up of bloated contracts, Oliver Perez versus Carlos Silva. Even with this poor start to the season, the Mets are only 2.5 games out of 1st place.
