Mike Pelfrey didn't have it tonight, getting battered around for five runs on eight hits including five for extra bases (three doubles, two triples). Really, he had one terrible inning.
Carlos Muniz and Duaner Sanchez relieved Pelfrey and tossed three scoreless innings (!), allowing Damion Easley to bring the Mets to within a run. Joe Smith made sure that didn't last long, as he coughed up a two-run Ugg-bomb that effectively put the game out of reach in the eighth.
Tonight's sign that the apocalypse is upon us: Marlon Anderson, 3-for-4. Anyone else feel dirty?
