Mets Swept Away; Braves Sink Pelf 5-2
It was more of the same at Citi Field last night, in a season that just can’t get end fast enough for the Mets at this point.
With Mike Pelfrey on the mound, the Mets put themselves in a huge hole. They tried to climb out, but could never mount an extended rally and lost 5-2 in the final game of the series.
The Braves struck for three in the second, with the help of a David Wright error, and then tacked on another in the third. Everything came on a series of hits, but Adam LaRoche had two of the RBIs, one in the second and another in the third. And like that, the Mets were down 4-0.
In all, Pelfrey went six innings and allowed four runs, three earned, on nine hits.
New York got a run back in the bottom half of the third on a Luis Castillo single. They then cut the deficit to 4-2 in the fourth with the help of an error, but could get no closer in a 5-2 loss.
Perhaps most frustrating was that the Mets had runners on in every inning but the second but could only score two runs. In all, New York went 2-for-18 with runners in scoring position.
The Mets are off today before beginning a three game weekend series in Florida.
