Pigs are flying everywhere, the Mets have 2 comeback wins in a week.
Saturday's 8th inning was unreal, especially since it was against a pitcher that always confounds the Mets, Jonathan Broxton.
Mike Pelfrey pitched a fantastic game, but got zero help from the Mets offense who scratched out a mere 3 hits while Pelfrey was in the game. But the key is Pelfrey kept the Mets close only giving up 2 runs in 6 innings striking out 6 while only walking one. The one walk is huge for Pelfrey who has struggled with his control.
Carlos Beltran woke up the Shea crowd with a bomb of a home run in the 8th and Fernando Tatis made Broxton pay for the intentional walk to Schneider before him. Tatis has been struggling to catch up to fastballs in the mid-90's but took Broxton to the opposite field for the game winning RBI.
Santana tomorrow and a 5-2 home stand would be a great way to head to the West Coast. Just no one else get injured. I'm seriously considering a petition to fire the Mets trainers, this is getting ridiculous.
