During the SNY broadcast, Ron Darling said that a pitcher knows when he has turned a corner when “a pitcher has his best stuff, his team wins. When a pitcher doesnt have his stuff, his team has a good chance to win and when a pitcher has nothing, he keeps his team in the game”. Pelfrey had nothing today but found a way to keep the Mets in todays game. The Mets gave Pelf a 5 run lead that even after a very rough 1st inning, never relinquished the lead. We are witnessing nothing short of a pitcher turning the corner into an ace this season with Mike.
