Recap:

Mike Pelfrey got the start for the Mets to night, and for the first time this season he didn’t look god awful, but he still allowed four runs in only 5.1 innings pitched. He left with a 4-2 lead, but Ryota Igarashi was unable to keep Pelfrey’s baserunner’s from crossing the plate. Bobby Parnell took the loss for the Mets as he allowed a three run 8th inning that the Mets were unable to come back from.

David Wright homered to cut the lead to 7-5, and an Ike Davis single plated Carlos Beltran after he doubled. That would be all the Mets would get though. They were retired 1,2,3 in the 9th as Huston Street picked up the save for the Rockies.

Jose Reyes was 2-5 tonight, with two triples, his first two triples of the season. David Wright was 2-3 homering for the second time this season and adding a sacrifice fly. He remains hot to start the season.
