Mike & Ike Lead Mets To Walk-Off Win

Mike Pelfrey and Ike Davis lead the Mets to a walk-off victory

Yes, there was some baseball played outside of Washington D.C. last night. Some excited baseball at that. We all know about last years first round pick Stephen Strasburg’s debut last night for the Washington Nationals.

The Mets had a pair of former first round picks carry them to a victory over NL West leading San Diego Padres.

Mike Pelfrey was unable to earn a win in the Mets 11-inning 2-1 victory but he pitched a gem. The righty went nine innings, giving up just one run on five hits. The only run came on an RBI double in the first inning by Padres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Pelfrey struck out six in the nine innings he worked.

Jose Reyes tied with game in the seventh inning with a solo home run but the game would stretch into the eleventh.

The Mets 2008 first round pick, first baseman Ike Davis provided the heroics. Prior to his final at bat, Davis had not been having a good night. He was 0-for-4 with a strikeout before stepping to the plate against Padres reliever Edward Mujica.

Davis belted a slider from Mujica over the right field wall for his first career walk off homer. After the team greated him at home plate, Alex Cora smashed a whipped cream pie in his face.

These two youngsters continue to contribute for the 2010 New York Mets. Davis has been a bit inconsistent but continues to get the job done. Maybe this homer will snap him out of the little funk he is in.

Pelfrey has been as consistent as they come. He continues to make a case for an All-Star nod.

Mike & Ike!
