7,559: Pelfrey strong as Mets win 1-0

Thank you Pelf

Mike Pelfrey threw 7 2/3 innings of shutout ball and Ryan Church singled home the game’s lone run Wednesday as the New York Mets topped the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 at Miller Park.

Pelfrey broke the Mets’ five-game losing streak by allowing just six hits and two walks during his start. Pelfrey lost his no-hitter in the second inning when Mat Gamel hit an infield single to third, making it 7,559 New York Mets without a no-no.

The game’s only run came when Luis Castillo led off the sixth with a ground-rule double to left and Church singled him home.

Sean Green was called upon to get the last out in the eighth after Pelfrey gave up a single and a walk, and Green did his job.

Francisco Rodriguez gave up a leadoff single up in the middle in the ninth and Prince Fielder followed with a liner up the middle, but Alex Cora was there to snag it and nearly turned the double play. K-Rod retired the next to batters for his 21st save of the season.
