No Reyes, no worry. The New York Mets wiped the floor with the lowly Dodgers, scoring six runs off three homeruns–one by Carlos Beltran, and two by Jason Bay. The Mets also received a brilliant performance by Mike Pelfrey, who hurled six innings, giving-up five hits, zero runs, two walks, and two strikeouts. The Mets improved to 44-42 with the win. Maybe they don’t need Jose Reyes after all (just kidding).
METS GAME HIGHLIGHTS:
- Mike Pelfrey pitched six innings, giving-up just five hits, no runs, two walks, while striking-out two batters. It was his fifth win.
- The Mets bullpen shined after Pelf exited. Pedro Beato, Jason Isringhausen, and D.J. Carrasco combined for three scoreless innings.
- Angel Pagan, who led-off, went 2-5 with a run, and his fifteenth stolen base.
- Carlos Beltran jump-started the Mets offense with a two-run shot. He finished the day with two hits, two RBI, and two runs-scored.
- Jason Bay continued his tear. The rightfielder smacked a solo shot in the sixth inning, and a game-defining two-run three-run dinger in the eighth. Bay had four RBI total.
- Ruben Tejada subbed for Reyes at shortstop, drawing two walks. He also made a fielding error.
