Game 1: Mets 8, Reds 3
Mike Pelfrey's line from Game 1:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 6.0 7 2 2 3 3 0 98-54 50Another decent-but-not-great start from Pelfrey. Again, he had spotty command of his off-speed pitches and wound up relying almost exclusively on his fastball. I suspect his feel for this pitches will come as he relaxes a little bit. You can forgive him for being a bit over-excited in his first few big league appearances.

Steve Trachsel's line from Game 2:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 3.1 6 3 3 4 2 0 66-38 34Trachsel looked pretty good through the first two-plus innings, but it's a little surprising that he was allowed to go back out there after the two-and-a-half hour rain delay. As Gary Cohen repeatedly said, Trachsel is one of these "creatures of habit"; his preparation for a game is so meticulously planned that he can often be thrown off track (or trach) by the slightest deviation. Such a prolonged stoppage qualifies as far more than a hiccup in the plans, and Trachsel was somewhat understandbly terrible when he returned to the game.

Tom Glavine's line from Game 3:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 6.1 9 2 2 4 1 0 102-58 44Glavine has been remarkably consistent in his unspectacularity over the past six weeks. He managed to keep the Reds to just two runs, but he allowed 13 baserunners in the process and was the fortunate recipient of some great relief work by Chad Bradford.
