Before Mike Pelfrey had even gotten an out, this game was doomed.

Pelfrey’s line from the first inning should tell you enough about how the game tonight went:

1.1 IP 7 H 6 ER 2BB 1SO through 67 pitches (51 of them being in the first inning).

The Mets full lineup was back together, but that wasn’t nearly enough to account for poor pitching by the Mets.

Even after Pelfrey’s disaster, Fernando Nieve gave up five runs, and Pedro Feliciano gave up another two runs in the eigth inning.

Mark Reynolds had four RBIs and a home run, and six Diamondback hitters had multi-hit games.

The Mets lineup didn’t produce much, but it had some run scoring chances. Also, Jose Reyes, David Wright and Luis Castillo all had multi-hit games. Reyes had an RBI and so did Angel Pagan .
