GAME 2 RECAP: Mets Dominate Dodgers, 6-0

By Unknown author

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).


  • 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.
