Game Review: Rockies @ Mets April 11, 2011
Even with an improved start from pitcher Mike Pefrey, the Mets still couldn’t pull it together to get a win to open the home series against the Colorado Rockies.
After Dan Murphy scored in the first inning off of a hit by Carlos Beltran, the New York team could not keep the lead, and ended up losing 7-6 due to bad pitching. Although Big Pelf had improved from his first two starts, he still have up four runs in 5.1 innings of work. Relievers Ryota Igarishi, Tim Byrdak and Jason Isringhausen gave up two hits in 1.2 innings of work combined. Bobby Parnell, however, was not as successful, giving up 3 runs, including a homerun to Troy Tulowitzki in just an inning pitched.
The Mets were not able to come back to match the seven runs, despite a pair of triples from Jose Reyes, and 5 RBI’s from David Wright, Willie Harris, and Ike Davis thanks to a homer and sacrifice fly, double, and sacrifice, respectively.
Despite putting up a fight, and appearing to be in the game almost all night, the Mets fell short yet again, and lost the first game of a series for the third time. With Jon Niese on the mound tomorrow, hopefully the boys will be able to put up a W, and keep the chance to win their first home series of the 2011 season.
