"I screwed that up," Pelfrey said. "Any time that an infielder gives 'open glove' you're supposed to pick. And, if not, step off. I threw home. That's why there was no one at first. That's two screw-ups in that inning (including walking No. 8 batter John Buck after Cameron's leadoff double). That's all on me, and I ended up paying for it."Pelfrey has now gone 16 straight starts without a win against the Marlins.
Howard Johnson and his son, Glen, will be playing together for the Rockland Boulders for the team's final homestand of the season.
"This may be my last go ‘round so it’s a great opportunity to play in a professional game with my son," said Howard Johnson. "How many fathers can do that?"According to the Star-Ledger, manager Terry Collins plans to split the playing time at second base between Justin Turner and Ruben Tejada in half. Each will get equal playing time.
