No no-no at Citi Field Friday, but Mike Pelfrey threw six innings of six-hit ball and David Wright went 2-for-3 with 3 RBIs to lead the New York Mets to a 5-2 win over the Minnesota Twins.
Pelfrey earned his 10th win of the season, and also increased his lead over the rest of the pitching staff for No-hitters killed by first at bat to 27. That happened when Pelfrey yielded a lead-off home run to Denard Span, increasing our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,717 New York Mets games with no no-no.
On top of that, it came on a night when a much, much younger franchise threw its second no-hitter. Edwin Jackson accomplished the feat against the Tampa Bay Rays at the Trop Friday despite issuing eight bases-on-balls. The D’Backs have now had two no-nos in 13 years of existence. The Mets? None in 49 years.
Anyway, Wright’s RBIs came on a second-inning double and a sixth-inning solo homer. Jose Reyes was 2-for-3 with an RBI and Jason Bay also drove in a run.
