Back to back

Mike Pelfrey threw his second consecutive complete game last night, beating the Astros 9-1. Carlos Delgado hit two three-run homers, and should easily finish the season hitting better than .255/30/100. If you had told me after the first two months that he’d hit 30 homers and drive in a hundred runs… well, I wouldn’t have believed it. If you had told me Pelfrey would be tied for the team lead in complete games, and leading the team in wins, I’d have called you crazy. The last two starts were the first and second complete games of his career. The last time a Mets starter threw back to back complete games was 2001. The last time a Mets starter had back to back complete game wins was 1995.

Still, they’re only half a game up on the Phillies, and start a two game series with them tonight. Gonna be a rough (but exciting) September.
