7-0. When the Mets are losing 7-0 the game is pretty much over… or so we thought.
Turns out Terry Collins troops picked themselves up off after Pelfrey got hammered and scored 3, 4 and 2 runs in separate innings to actually take a 2 run lead!
I swear I would’ve bet everything I had this game was over.
K-Rod gave 1 run back but the lead and comeback stood as the Mets.
Mad Prop Dept of the Day:
- Beltran who doubled and homered to produce 4 RBIs pushing his avg to .288
- Tejada who finished with 3 ribbies himself and is currently batting .313
- The middle relief of Byrdak, Parnell and Izzy who held the Bucs in check allowing the comeback to materialize.
Post props I gotta say Pelfrey has been regressing the last 2 games. Thursday felt like he wasn’t ready from the start. As if it was an 11A Patriots day game that was simply too early for his biological clock.
Back to Props for Justin Turner who was named the National League’s rookie of the month for May.
Young Justin hit .325 with 27 hits in 83 AB’s w/ 8 doubles, HR and 20 RBI
Freakin love this kid!
