Every win sure isn't easy for the Mets but for the first 6 innings tonight Mike Pelfrey used all his pitches to keep the Yankees off balance and K Rod came out of the bullpen to notch a 5 out save as the Mets held on to a 5-3 victory tonight.
David Wright had 2 key 2 out rbi singles and Jason Bay went 4-4. He had 3 singles and a double with a stolen base and scored 3 runs.
20 year old Mejia came in for the 7th and after giving up a couple of hits got a key struck out of Texiera and got A Rod to bounce out to Wright. That was Im sure the most pressure packed game situation for the 20 year old so far this year.
Manager Jerry brought in Pedro to pitch the 8th but he was not effective loading the bases with 0 outs . Nieve got a strike out but then walked in the 2 run . K Rod was able to get out of trouble in the 8th and had 2 men on with 2 out in the 9th but struck out Cervelli.
