Tonight, Mike Pelfrey was in early 2010 form going 7 innings and giving up only 4 hits as the Mets defeated the Rockies, and Ubaldo Jimenez, tonight 1-0 (box score).
The Mets didn't do much at the plate, but when you're pitching is that good, you only need one run to win. I do think it's interesting to note that the only Mets to get hits tonight were Fernando Martinez, Chris Carter, Josh Thole and Mike Pelfrey...BUT...Reyes drove in the only run of the night with a sac fly. Also interesting to see how the line up looked without BOTH Beltran and Francoeur in it.
Nice win to get back to .500. If the Mets continue to play these young guys, and they should/will, games like tonight's will help build character and give the young guys confidence in close games going forward.
Nice win, fellas.
