Game 53: Happy Recap

 Mets win 4-2 behind a dominating pitching performance from Huge Pelf and two home runs from the corner infielders.

  • Mike Pelfrey acted like a true 'stopper' and really stymied the Padres offense.
    • 8 innings, 4 hits, 2 walks, 1 run, 8 strikeouts (matches career high).
    • He has really taken the next step in his development and is 1A to Johan
  • K-Rod needed 30 pitches to get the save, allowing 3 hits and one run, but struck out the last 2 hitters
  • D Wright filled the box score, hitting his 9th home run, getting three hits, two RBIs and a stolen base
  • I Davis hit a mammoth HR to dead-center in the top of the 7th to give the Mets a 4-1 lead on a high fastball
  • J Francoeur was so excited that he got on first base, he got picked off/caught stealing with Pelfrey up and one out in the 2nd inning.
    • What was he thinking? Pelfrey was going to bunt him to 2nd and then he would score on a base hit by Reyes; being on 2nd or 3rd wouldn't have made a big difference.
  • LeBlanc made my scouting report look good, as he lasted only 5 1/3 innings and didn't throw 100 pitches (93), while getting 6 flyouts to 2 groundouts (even though Ron said he was a GB pitcher; sorry Ron, you are still one of the best announcers). His change-up was also outstanding tonight.
Mets try to win the series tomorrow night, 6:35 start, J Santana vs C Richard.
