The Mets took care of business, and swept the hapless Orioles (17-46) in a three-game series. This is the first road sweep since September 2008, as the Mets won 11-4.

  • The Mets had 18 hits. 18 hits. 11 of which were of of K Millwood
    • Anyone still want him at the trading deadline? Just sayin'
  • D Wright hit two home runs and a double, finishing 3-5 and raised his average to .286. 
  •  J Bay was 4-4 with a home run. He raised his average to .284. 
  • "The Animal is out of the cage", as Chris Carter hit a 3-run HR in the 1st inning. 
  • A Cora had a nice game, going 3-4 with 2 RBIs. 
  • Pelfrey wasn't at the top of his game, throwing 101 pitches in 6 innings, allowing 9 hits, 3 walks and 3 runs, while striking out one. 
    • Pelfrey improved to 9-1 and is almost a lock for the All-Star team at this point
  • Igarashi and Valdes both contributed two perfect innings.
The Mets (35-28) have a much deserved day off, and travel to Cleveland (25-37) for a 3-game set starting on Tuesday.  Let's hope they win another road series, and they even have a chance for another sweep.

  1. It was certainly nice to see the offense pick up a pitcher that was having an 'off' day. Pelfrey was shaky, but he did enough to give the team a chance through 6 innings. Granted, being spotted a 5 run cushion in the 1st helped! Hopefully they can bring those bats with them to Cleveland!
