Mike Pelfrey had his longest outing of the year Monday, throwing 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball to lead the New York Mets to a 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves to snap a five-game losing streak.
Pelfrey allowed just seven hits and two walks, losing his no-hitter on the first batter when Martin Prado lead off with a single. That advances our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,683 New York Mets games with no no-no and cements Pelfrey’s standing atop the current starters section of our No-hitters killed by first at bat page with 24, far exceeding Oliver Perez’s 17.
The Mets won the game despite getting only 5 hits, with catcher Rod Barajas leading the way with a 2-for-4 night, including a two-RBI double. Chris Carter (1-for-2) got the other RBI on a ground-out.
