Initial Reaction:

Mike Pelfrey faced off against veteran Kevin Millwood in the final game of the three-game set. Both pitchers struggled early on, but the Mets offense gave Pelfrey enough run support to record his ninth win of the season.

The Mets offense woke up today, producing 11 runs on 18 hits. The big bats were Wright and Bay, but every other starter came up with a hit as well. The most important thing was tacking on runs early, and thats exactly what the Mets did. They need to continue hitting well as they head into Cleveland this week, and then the Bronx.

Positives From The Game:

The Wright Stuff: David Wright is hot! Rebounding from an 0 for 4 last night, Wright raked two homeruns over the left field wall at Camden Yards this afternoon. He was 3 for 5, driving in four runs, while crossing the plate twice. It’s his sixth multi-hit game in the month of June. If he continues to perform like this, fans, don’t worry about the strikeouts.

Bay Breaks Slump: Four seemed to be the lucky number for Jason Bay after today’s game. After an 0 for 16 skid, Bay bashed four hits in four at bats, including his fourth homerun of the season, and scored four of the Mets eleven runs. His batting average is now up to .284.

“The Animal”: Chris Carter hit his second 3-run homerun in the series. Keep him at DH and in the lineup while you can, because he’s been living up to the nickname.

Negatives From The Game:

Pelfrey Pounded: Mike Pelfrey lacked his stuff from the get-go and had to battle all afternoon. In six innings he allowed three runs, while yielding nine hits and three walks. Luckily for him, the Mets offense woke up today and bailed him out early.

Interesting Facts:

9: Wins for Mike Pelfrey in 2010. He trails only Ubaldo Jimenez (12) in NL wins, who was actually born 8 days after him.

12: Home runs David Wright has this season after today, already surpassing last season’s total.

September 2008: Last time the Mets swept a team on the road.

What’s Next?: The Mets look to continue their road success as they take on the Cleveland Indians in a three-game set beginning Tuesday night.

NYM Johan Santana (4-3) 2.96 ERA vs. CLE Justin Masterson (2-5) 4.74 ERA
