Game 108: Marlins 7 - Mets 5
Sorry to be so late with this. My food poisoning from early in the week has proven to be the gift that keeps giving, as I struggle to shake off the effects and catch up on the work.
It was disappointing that the Mets had 3 winnable games in Florida and only managed to take one, but that's baseball. I just want to see them bounce back against Houston.
As for Mike Pelfrey, it will be interesting to see what adjustments he makes after this one. He had a couple of tough starts against the Yankees and Angels during his winning streak, but this was by far his worst start in a while. Still, he didn't walk anybody, which is a good sign. I still want to see how he bounces back from this one.
First place was nice while it lasted, and I hope they get there again. Back to the salt mines for me.
