On The MoundThe Mets jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, anchored by a beautiful performance from Mike Pelfrey. Six innings, three hits and only one run. He walked only one and struck out three.
Pelfrey just looked spectacular out there. If he can stay healthy this year, I'm very excited to see what he can do while on the bump.
New addition Fernando Nieve, who the Mets picked up off waivers recently, pitched a scoreless inning against his former team, allowing two hits. Carlos Muniz pitched the 8th inning, striking out one. Sean Green finished out the game for the Mets, retiring the side in order.
At The PlateNick Evans continues to shine in his team-leading appearances at the plate. At first base for the second straight game, Evans went 3-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Two doubles and a home run for Evans, he seems to be responding to me calling him out for not showing a lot of power.
The more I see of Evans, the more I'm impressed. Still, he just doesn't have a spot on the major league roster.
Jose Reyes also had a huge day leading off, driving in four runs with two doubles.
Batting first in the order, just like he will come the regular season.
Fernando Tatis also picked up two RBIs on the day. Ramon Castro and Andy Green also picked up one each.
On DeckThe Mets will travel and take on the Baltimore Orioles tomorrow at 1 p.m. The game is not on TV.
