The Least You Should Know:
- Mike Pelfrey started for the Mets today, and he struggled from the very beginning, allowing a run in the first and a pair of two run home runs in the third and fourth innings – one by Mark Teixeira which tied the game at 3-3, and then a Curtis Granderson blast which gave the Yankees the 5-3 lead.
- Pelfrey did go seven innings, but allowed all five runs on seven hits.
- Jose Reyes hit a leadoff home run and a two run home run against Phil Hughes in the third, who started off poorly but settled down nicely to go seven innings for his tenth victory of the year.
…well, you can’t win ’em all i suppose…
…pelf’s problem was he had trouble getting that sinker down consistently, and he was centering a lot of pitches, and against that team in that ballpark, nobody can afford to do that…
…Reyes continues to swing a hot bat, and all of a sudden, he is hitting for more power, which is yet another great sign…he’s going on all cylinders, and its great to see…
The Mets will go for the series victory tomorrow afternoon at Yankee Stadium, with Johan Santana facing CC Sabathia. Game time is at 1:05 pm.
