Behind a second consecutive solid outing by Big Pelf, the Mets won their 4th straight game by defeating the Rockies 4-0 and moving within 5.5 games of the wild card held by Colorado.
Pelf went 6 1/3 strong scattering 7 hits and striking out 5 while the pen went their 3rd straight game without giving up a run.
Francoeur continues to rake by again adding to his RBI total. Mets fans got a bit of a scare when he was hit in the hand by a pitch, but he appears to be alright. Castillo received an early Christmas gift from Home plate ump Larry Vanover when he was called safe at home in the 8th.
It seems that as of late, the Mets are doing all of the little things right. This is, by far, the most relaxed I have seen this team since May before everybody and their mother got placed on the D.L
The Mets will go for 5 straight tomorrow and the man they call Johan gets the ball! With the exception of God and maybe Roy Halladay is there anyone else you'd rather have on the mound?
