Mets Game 122: Win Over Pirates
Mets 7 Pirates 2
Too bad it took 122 games for the Mets to find a team that their lineup could put a whuppin’ on.
The Mets scored, scored, and scored some more, to the point where one might’ve began to feel sorry for Jeff Karstens and the AAA team behind him.
But it was nice to see the orange and blue finally burst out with the lumber, and perform the very opposite of “pathetic”.
Mike Pelfrey cruised through 8 innings to his 12th win of the season, allowing only 2 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks, striking out 5. He had the hard sinker running and kept his wits about him for most of the game.
