Go Big Pelf Go.
Michael Alan Pelfrey. Eight dominant innings, allowing just one run on four hits and two walks. Pelf matched his career high with eight strikeouts. He lowered his season ERA to 2.39 and his WHIP to 1.24. If being the ace of a team mattered, Mike Pelfrey would be the leading candidate for the Mets.
Ike-power. A two-run home run to dead center in the 7th inning ended up being the game winner. He crushed it.
D.W. Mr. Wright went 3-4, with two RBI, including a solo home run in the 6th. He also stole the only base of the game, as three other runners were eliminated on the basepaths.
The Bad & Ugly
Seriously, K-Rod? It seems inevitable that there will be runners on if K-Rod is on the mound. He allowed one run on three hits before throwing nine straight strikes to K the final two batters and end the game. But it’s always interesting with you, isn’t it K-Rod? I’d like some more 1-2-3 innings, please.
A strange 6:35 p.m. start tomorrow in San Diego.
