You know it's not good when Pedro Martinez drives in the only two runs for your team.
Pedro was the definition of "decent." Pedro allowed three runs in the first inning, allowing an RBI double, groundout, and single before escaping. He ended up throwing six innings, letting up nine hits. He allowed the fourth earned run in the sixth inning, an RBI single to right.
He needed 116 pitches, and even touched 90 mph a few times. He walked three and struck out seven.
Didn't think he's make it through the first, then the third, and he ended up going six. Not bad, but not great. Without his bat, the Mets would have been shut out.
Scott Schoeneweis turned in an inning and 1-3 of scoreless baseball, striking out one. Robert (Bobby? Which is it?) Parnell pitched 2-3 of an inning, striking out one.
Another stellar bullpen performance. Well done, guys.
Martinez drove in both Mets runs with a double in the fifth inning, plating Brian Schneider and Carlos Beltran.
The Rest of the Story
David Wright was the only Met to pick up two hits, a single and a double.
Schoeneweis needed only 12 pitches to retire four batters.
