Nothing like a road funk a little Orioles Magic can’t fix.
Homer happy. Four home runs on the day, two off the bat of David Wright, as he drove in four on the day. Chris Carter hit his second three-run home run of the series and Jason Bay finally hit a home run on the road while wearing a Mets uniform.
Jason Bay went 4-4, driving in one and scoring four times. He was a triple short of the cycle.
Every player in the Mets starting lineup collected at least one hit.
Seven of the Mets 18 hits went for extra bases.
The Bad & Ugly
I’m not sure a six inning, three earned run effort belongs in “bad & ugly,” but for Mike Pelfrey against the Orioles, it’s close enough. Pelf surrendered nine hits and walked three yet was able to work out of any significant damage. He allowed the three runs in the first three innings, but settled in a bit after that. Not his best start, but not his worst. He was able to work around his bad start and earn his 9th win of the year thanks to the offensive explosion.
Oh, Jenrry. Mejia gave up one run on two hits in his one inning of work.
Monday is an off-day. The Mets pull into Cleveland for a three-game set against the Indians, starting Tuesday at 7:05 p.m.
