In his second start of the season he pitched 6 innings where he allowed one earned run over 8 hits. Last season he was 1-1 against the Giants in two starts over 13.2 innings with an ERA of 1.98. The Giants have the following numbers against Pelfrey:
Sandoval 3-13, 2B
The Mets bats get a crack at a Ryan Vogelsong today who has pitched 6.1 innings this season allowing 2 ER. Last season he made two starts against the Mets where he pitched 11.0 innings where he allowed 7 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against Ryan in his career:
Davis 1-2, HR
