Game #133: Marlins 6, Mets 0

Mets starter Mike Pelfrey was good against the Marlins... until the seventh inning. (NYDailyNews.com)
After almost 5 games worth of great performances, New York finally ran out of gas.

Mike Pelfrey's night was ruined by an awful 7th and the Mets' offense couldn't get anything going, falling to the Marlins 6-0.

The Bad Stuff:
  • After 6 innings of shutout ball, Mike Pelfrey collapsed in the 7th, allowing 4 of the 5 runs Florida got in that inning (Tim Byrdak let the fifth run in). DJ Carrasco let a sixth run cross in the 9th, not that the Fish needed it.
  • The Mets' bats couldn't get off the ground against Javier Vazquez and company; all 6 of their hits were singles, and only got runners past second base in two innings.
The Good Stuff:
  • Not too much Good Stuff to talk about in this one: I guess David Wright and Josh Thole had 2 hits each, and Jose Reyes had a hit and stole a base.
  • Mike Pelfrey's first 6 innings of work should go here too.
Final Analysis:
The Mets had won 4 in a row, but couldn't get it done tonight in the drive for 5. Every team has games like this, though. As long as they keep playing like they have the past few days, this is no big deal.
