3 Standout Performances:
- Murphy went 2 for 4 with a homerun off Justin Verlander.
- Pelfrey started and went 4 2/3 innings and let up 8 hits, 5 runs, 4 earned, walked 5, and struck out 3.
- Reyes and Bay had 2 hits a piece.
Pelfrey flat out was terrible today. He did not have an out pitch. It was just foul ball after foul ball after foul ball. He didn’t throw inside at all and was afraid of his fastball.
Murphy is such an underrated hitter in the NL. He is over .300 with 5 homers this year. He is a great hitter.
The bullpen was great not allowing a run through 4 1/3 innings pitched.
Verlander was just too much for the Mets today. Go get the Yankees tomorrow.
Grade for the Game: C+
