Solid job by Pelfrey
Photos
Mets 8, Phillies 2
Mike Pelfrey allowed two runs in five innings to win his first start of 2008. (AP)
The Mets ended a nine-game skid against the Phillies mostly because of their patience, drawing six walks against Kyle Kendrick and capitalizing with some timely base hits. Mike Pelfrey pitched a solid five innings to win his 2008 debut.
