Game 2 Recap: Mets Hold Onto Win Against Rockies, 4-3

By Unknown author

Phew, that was close! After a 50 minute rain delay, the Mets held their lead despite the roaring Rockies offense. The highlight of the game was certainly Mike Pelfrey’s performance. The struggling starter pitched 6.6 innings of six-hit, three earned-run ball, with one walk and two strikeouts. While it wasn’t the “best” outing in the world, it was the first time all season that Big Pelf has won back-to-back outings. The win bumps the Mets record up to 16-20.


  • Jose Reyes went 1-4 with his twelve double of the season, and a run-scored.
  • Dan Murphy smacked two singles, and scored a run.
  • Ike Davis went 1-2 with two RBI before apparently straining his calf while knocking into David Wright on a pop-up.
  • Ronny Paulino continued his terror by going 1-3 with a walk, and run-scored.
  • Mike Pelfrey won his third game of the season behind a solid 6.6 innings, giving up six hits, three earned-runs, one walk, and two strikeouts. The pitcher also helped himself out with a two-RBI double.
