Only Thing Mets Upset Is My Stomach

The Mets had a chance to play spoiler against St. Louis, who is fighting for a playoff spot. Instead, they squandered an early 4-0 lead, and eventually lost to the Cardinals, 11-6.

  • Mike Pelfrey went six innings, giving up five runs on ten hits, while striking out two and walking none.
  • The bullpen was atrocious. Josh Stinson, Tim Byrdak, and D.J. Carrasco gave up a combined six runs in the seventh inning.
  • General manager Sandy Alderson joined the SNY booth during the game, and stated that as of right now, the 2012 closer is not in the organization. Obviously, Sandy.
  • Lucas Duda doubled home the first run of the game for the Mets in the first inning.
  • The Mets would go on to score three more runs in the third inning on ground outs from David Wright and Willie Harris, and a single from Josh Thole.
  • Pelfrey helped himself out at the plate as well. He hit a ground-rule double in the fifth inning to drive in the Mets' fifth run of the game.
  • Angel Pagan was 3-4 at the plate with an RBI and a run scored. With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Pagan drew a walk to force in the Mets sixth run.
  • The Mets left 13 men on base.

Next Up: The Mets continue their series with the Cardinals tonight. Chris Schwinden gets the start. Game time is 8:15 p.m.
