Was it the Curse of the Sports Illustrated cover?
Or was it just the Mets bringing back some confidence from Philadelphia and showing the home crowd some major offense?
Mike Pelfry outpitched the soon-to-be All Star and the Mets won their fourth game in a row. The team is now 1 1/2 games behind division leader Philadelphia–tied with the Marlins who lost last night, is now two games above .500, and they handed Tim Lincecum his first loss since April 29th.
Now…what kind of freak of nature would it be if the Mets’ offense could ensure our ace Santana a victory for a change tonight?!
How ’bout it, guys?!
