Mets fought it out till the very end, but the bullpen just…well sucks. Great start by Pelfrey with six innings and only four hits, and nice job by Ronny Paulino who led the offense tonight. Mets lose with their first walk-off loss of the season, 7-6 to Brewers.
Mike Pelfrey with another good start tonight. Pelf allowed only four hits and made just one big mistake, a fastball down the middle to Fielder who hit another homerun to give the Brewers the lead. Pelfrey went six good innings before being pulled for a pinch hitter. Pelf also racked up two Ks and no walks in the game.
The bullpen was depleted today as five relievers were used tonight with lackluster efforts. Five runs were given up in a combined effort in 2.1 innings pitched. Another bullpen implosion.
The offense fell silent until the eighth inning rolled in and both teams started hitting. Beltran, Reyes, and Tejada all had a double with Reyes and Pagan each having a stolen base. Reyes now has a 12 game hit-streak. Still not Carl Crawford.
Ronny Paulino stole the show for the Mets (Fielder stole the whole show though). Paulino went 4-4 with his first homerun of the season and three RBIs.
Jason Bay 0-3. 0-last-23. Sigh.
Nick Evans 0-3, 2 K. Camp town ladies sing this song, DUDA, DUDA!
Once more bad calls plague ML baseball.
Ninth inning, that dreaded Nyjer Morgan with a walk-off hit.
Ronny Paulino. Impressive showing.
Jon Niese starts against a dominant Yovani Gallardo and the Brewers. Game time is 7:10 PM.
