A comedy of errors by the Nationals and a nice start out of Mike Pelfrey. What a Saturday.
The Mets (8-9) beat the Nationals (3-13) by a score of 8-2.
The Mini Recap
Pelfrey, coming off a skipped start, pitched effectively and surprisingly well. Almost six innings out of Pelfrey must be encouraging for the Mets. The bullpen turned in 3 1-3 solid innings.
Thanks to three errors and a handful of other bad choices by the Nationals, the Mets scored eight runs, only four of which were earned. Ryan Church drove in three runs while Carlos Beltran picked up three hits.
