Mike Pelfrey got the win tonight, giving up 3 runs in his 6.2 innings of work, as well as knocking in the game-winning 2-run double.  The Mets now improve to 16-20 on the year.

Jose Reyes got things started with a double to lead off the game, and then Daniel Murphy followed with a single to set up the inning against Rockies starter Jason Hammel.  Ike Davis singled both of them in to grant Pelfrey a quick 2-0 lead.  Pelfrey, however, gave it back in the 2nd inning on solo shots to certified Met-killer Troy Tulowitzki and Seth Smith.

Jon Niese pitched his second ineffective game in a row, giving up 5 runs in his 6 innings of work. The Mets spotted him an early 2-0 lead thanks to a 2-out RBI double in the 1st inning by Carlos Beltran, and then Angel Pagan scoring on a wild pitch an inning later.
