Pelfrey’s terrible start to the season trudged on, with a 5.3 inning, 6 hits, 3 earned-runs, 4 walks, and 3 strikeouts performance. Pelf wasn’t the only Mets pitcher to struggle though.
Recently promoted Ryota Igarashi allowed a few of Pelfrey’s runners score in a predictably mediocre 2/3-inning performance. Tim Byrdak continued his noticeable struggles against lefties, allowing a lead-off double to left-handed hitter Seth Smith. Byrdak proceeded to walk the next batter, former Met Ty Wigginton, but then sat-down lefty Ian Stewart.
The real highlight of the game was the debut of Jason Isringhausen–or at least his first game as a Met since 1999. The former closer pitched 2/3 innings without allowing a baserunner, and even hit 92 on the radar gun.
Bobby Parnell replaced Izzy in the 8th inning, and surrendered 3 hits, 3 earned-runs in 1 inning of work, and even threw the ball wildly over Thole’s head on a play at the plate. Parnell not only allowed those three runs, but also blew the lead–and the game.
Other Mets Highlights:
- Jose Reyes went 2-4, 2 3B, and 1 R
- Dan Murphy stole his first base of the season
- David Wright hit his second HR of the season, and went 2-3 with 2 RBI
- Ike Davis knocked in his 11th RBI of the season
- Willie Harris had a two-RBI double
