GAME 2 RECAP: Mets Dominate Angels, Win 6-1


Isn’t it great when Mike Pelfrey pitches well? Big Pelf hurled a complete game almost shut-out, giving-up just five hits, one earned-run (solo shot to Mark Trumbo), zero walks, and five strikeouts. The Mets offense thankfully supported Pelfrey’s masterpiece. Carlos Beltran connected for a two-run homerun, and chipped-in three RBI total. Jason Bay and Justin Turner had a RBI of their own to boot. Aside from another Justin Turner error, the Mets played about as perfect as it gets. The team is a game below .500 (a very familiar disposition).
