Mets Win/Yankees Lose

The New York Mets had a good night last night in defeating the Washington Nationals by the score of 8-2. Mike Pelfrey turned in a strong pitching performance and the Mets hit 4 homeruns in a game at Citi Field for the first time. Rod Barajas and Jeff Francoeur each hit 2 homeruns. Mike Pelfrey pitched 6 innings giving up 4 hits and 2 runs with 4 walks and 4 strikeouts. Hisanori Takahashi, Fernando Nieve and Jenrry Mejia each pithced a scoreless inning. Angel Pagan and Alex Cora each had a hit and a walk and Alex Cora had a rbi. David Wright had 2 hits a walk and a rbi. Jason Bay had a hit and a walk. It was a good game all the way around for the Mets who now will get Jose Reyes back today and that should provide them with a boost. The best thing about this game for the Mets though was the effective pitching from Mike Pelfrey. If the Mets are going to go anywhere they need good pitching from someone other then Johan Santana. They will play game 2 of the 3 game series this afternoon at 1:00PM. The Yankees on the other hand had a very bad night. Javier Vazquez did not have a good return back to the Yankees and the AL. He pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up 8 hits and 8 runs with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. Sergio Mitre did a good job in relief pitching 2 1/3 innings giving up 2 hits and 1 run with 1 strikeout. Alex Rodriguez had a rbi triple and Derek Jeter and Nick Johnson each had 2 hits. Robinson Cano, Marcus Thames and Nick Swisher each had a hit. The Yankees will attempt to bounce back this afternoon at 3:10PM with CC Sabathia on the mound.
