- Jon Niese was not good. He went six innings, giving up three runs on ten hits, while striking out three. Niese was not helped by his defense. All three runs that Niese allowed to score were the result of poor fielding on the part of Scott Hairston and Angel Pagan.
- The Mets only run of the game came in the fourth inning on a double to left field from Ruben Tejada.
- Mike Pelfrey even entered the game in the eighth inning to pitch. In his brief appearance, he gave up a run on two hits, and wasn't even able to get out of the inning. Following the game, Pelfrey said, "I'm glad I got to go out there. It was fun. I had some adrenaline." At least one person was happy to see Pelfrey on the mound.
