3 Standout Performances:
- Lucas Duda hit a bomb into the upper deck of Nationals Park, a game tying shot for his 9th homer of the year.
- Willie Harris hit a pinch hit 2 run single to give the Mets the lead.
- In his big league debut Josh Satin went 1 for 2 with a single.
I don’t know what to say about Mike Pelfrey. The one plus over his last couple of starts have been his fastball velocity. It has been climbing back up into 95-97 range as of late. However, he still does not have a put away pitch in his arsenal. I still think he should use his curve more.
Ruben Tejada is making a case here that he can hit at this level.
Josh Stinson was great out of the bullpen again going 2 innings today showing poise as a relief pitcher.
Congrats to Josh Satin on his first big league hit.
Grade for the Game: B+
