Back in April, Mets fans everywhere were ready to run Delgado and Pelfrey out of town, but you know what? We're okay with being wrong this season.
Tonight, Mike Pelfrey continued to impress everyone, throwing the Mets' first back-to-back complete games in thirteen years.
And as for Carlos Delgado...
In the first inning, with Jose Reyes and David Wright on-base, Carlos "Esta en Fuego" Delgado smashed a home run to left field, giving the Mets a 3-0.
In the sixth inning, Binghamton Boy No. 1, Daniel Murphy, hit a sac fly to score Beltran and make it 4-0.
Once again, lightning struck when Delgado homered to center, way beyond the 410 mark, scoring Reyes and Wright again to make it 7-0.
Now, in the eighth inning, it wasn't as though he needed anymore insurance runs, but Pelfrey walked and Jose Reyes tripled, scoring both Pelf and Ryan Church.
Pelfrey was shutting out the Astros in the top of the ninth, but on a Wigginton ground out, Newhan scored, despite the fact that Delgado made a phenomenal diving play.
Overall, Mike Pelfrey pitched a phenomenal game, giving up one run on six hits, without giving up a single walk, striking out six.
Notable performances came from:
Jose Reyes was 3-4 in tonight's game, with a walk, a single, a double, a triple, and a stolen base. Along the way, Reyes 1.0 racked up two RBI's and two runs scored, both on Delgado's home runs.
Carlos Delgado was 2-4 tonight, smacking two home runs deep into the New York night. Delgado knocked in six runs tonight, scoring twice.
Ryan Church has been excellent since his return, going 2-4 again with a run scored. His average is back up to .313.
David Wright went 1-2 in tonight's game, scoring twice on a single and two walks.
Wright's average is climbing again, this time landing at .294.
