9/21 Game Thread: No More Mets!

on .

Seven games left. Chipper Jones is batting .362; Albert Pujols is batting .351. Today's the rubber match against the Mets, followed by 3 against the Phillies and then 3 against the Astros. More interestingly, right now we're 9-9, with a chance of our first month of .500 or better baseball since May, which was the only month in which we didn't have a losing record. Today Jamie Parr goes against Mike Pelfrey. Parr saw the scoreless innings streak to start his career end at 14. Pelfrey's having his breakout season this year, 13-10 with a 3.67 ERA, and is a big reason the Mets were able to come back from their early-season woes and has been an anchor in their tattered starting rotation. His home run rate has gone up slightly in the second half, but he's cut his walk rate, and his overall season statistics aren't a mirage. But we've beaten him pretty solidly. In 5 starts against us, he's 2-3 with a 5.83 ERA, 16 K and 15 BB in 29 1/3 innings. Jamie has never faced the Mets, which is just as well. The Phillies tagged him pretty good and proper his last time out. If we can't salvage any of our own dignity, at least we can drag the Mets down with us. Cheers to that.
