Mike Pelfrey pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday to lead the Mets to a 3-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
Jose Reyes again opened the game with a triple and David Wright singled him home to give Pelfrey an early 1-0 lead. Carlos Beltran’s blast with Wright on-base in the third provided the rest of the Mets’ offense. The Mets had only six hits and the Rockies managed just four in a rare pitchers’ duel in a hitters’ ballpark.
Rockies’ No. 2 hitter Jeff Baker again killed the no-hitter opportunity – this time with an infield single in the first – to advance the NoNoHitters.com count at 7,394 New York Mets games without a no hitter.
