Mets 11, Orioles 4: Wright, Manimal Power Sweep Of O's

New, 137 comments

The Mets pounded out 18 hits and 11 runs -- much of it against would-be future Met Kevin Millwood -- in pummeling the Orioles 11-4, completing the three-game sweep away from home. David Wright knocked in four runs with two two-run home runs and also added a double to his 3-for-5 day. He did strike out once, bringing his season total to 74 and the AA pledge-o-meter to $868.76.

Jason Bay went 4-for-4 with a walk and hit his fourth home run of the season. Chris Carter hit his second three-run home run of the series and is slugging .563.

Mike Pelfrey wasn't great, but he scattered nine hits and three walks and kept the Orioles to just three runs in six innings. Jenrry Mejia came on to pitch the seventh in a crucial spot in what was at the time a tenuous 11-3 lead for the Mets. He allowed a lone run in a real game-changing appearance that couldn't possibly have been performed by Manny Acosta.

The Mets have an off day Monday, then head to Cleveland for three games before going to Yankee Stadium III next weekend for a series with the Yankees.

Wright's two homers lead Met attack
While it appears that Bay's bat may be back
Though the weekend performance couldn't be finer
This competition was decidedly minor
