First up is Mike Pelfrey. Big Pelf stepped it up tonight and bounced back for 6.1 innings of shut out ball. Pelf threw 71 pitches out of 115 for strikes and was able to pitch himself out of trouble the whole night. Its games like this that really confuses me about Mike. I mean he can seem so effective many times and others times he just seems like he is not even there. Gotta like what you saw tonight from Pelf, especially bearing down to get Barmes to pop up to end a bases loaded threat in the 5th inning. Well done Mike.
Next up is Pedro Feliciano. Where did this Pedro come from? Pedro went 1.2 innings of shut out ball to preserve the win for Mike Pelfrey for his 19th hold of the season. Pedro owns a very cool 2.75 ERA and has definitely put into question the whole LOOGY debate. Now while he owns lefties with them hitting only .185 off him, he owns a .275 BAA for nighties and apparently Manuels trust to get them out. Pedro is and has been an important piece of this years bullpen cog and im glad we kept the right lefty. Good job Pedro
Next up is Dan “The Man” Murphy. Who would have thought the key to getting the Mets on a role was sticking Murph in the cleanup spot lol. Murph had a good night at the plate, going 2-3 with an RBI and accounting for 2 runs. Now Murph doesn’t have the sexiest BA(.248) on the team, but he is putting on a highlight reel at 1b, Not to mention having a .987 Fielding percentage(compared to .956 as a LF). Keep it up Murph
Luis Castillo remains white hot as he drove in another RBI when he singled in Alex Cora
Jeff “F-Core” Francoeur drove in another RBI. Seems like its a daily thing for him
David Wright for going 2-3
