Tonight the Mets offense minus newly former Met Carlos Beltran continued to pound Reds pitching. The leaders tonight? The D brothers, yeah I am changing the rules a little. Daniel Murphy continues to hit going 4/5 with 2 more doubles bringing him up to 28 on the year. David Wright has came back from the DL (got carried away) en fuego, 2 more hits tonight including a 3 run HR and 4 RBI. The the 3rd D is for Duda who was able to hit his 2nd HRof the season on a line drive off of Arroyo. (Also a factor was Jose Reyes who had yet another multi-hit game going 2-5 but does not have a D in his name so he is disqualified. Besides 4D is already a commenter here and that would be awkward to have her name in the title. )
Not to be lost in all of this was the complete game from Whipping Boy Mike. Pelfrey was able to hold the Reds to 2 runs on 7 hits with 0 walks for his 2nd complete game of the season lowering his ERA to 4.56 but 3.80 after his first 4 starts of the year.
Tomorrow the Mets will go for the series sweep at Noon with Chris Capuano toeing the mound vs Homer Bailey. Bailey has looked tough so this one could get interesting. For the preview take a peek here.
