Mets Get Reeled In By The Marlins 5-3
The Mets lost to the Florida Marlins Wednesday night by a score of 5-3. Mike Pelfrey took the loss going 5.2 innings giving up 5 runs on 11 hits. Josh Johnson got the win for the Fish going 6 innings and giving up 3 runs on 9 hits.
Pelfrey has always had trouble with the Marlins in his career and tonight he continued to have difficulties. I am in the camp that believes Pelfrey threw too many innings last year and is still getting used to the work load of a major league season. Either way, Pelfrey needs to become more consistent to become the pitcher he is capable of being.
The Mets took an early lead in the ball game on a double by Fernando Tatis scoring Cory Sullivan. Anderson Hernandez followed Tatis’ double with a single to put the Mets ahead 2-0.However, the lead didn’t last long when Pelfrey’s nemisis Cody Ross tripled in two runs to tie the game. The Mets would not regain the lead the rest of the way.
Tatis improved his career stats against Josh Johnson to 9 of 12 against the big righty. However, Pelfrey continued to struggle against Cody Ross who seems to get a big hit every time he faces Pelfrey.
The Mets finish their series against the Marlins tomorrow afternoon when Tim Redding (1-4, 6.10) takes on Anibal Sanchez (2-4, 4.97) at 1:10 EST.
