Leave it up to the most unlikely of pitchers to help the Mets avoid a six game losing streak.

In an outstanding performance, Pitcher Mike Pelfrey safeguarded a one run lead throughout seven innings. He gave just what the Mets needed, solid pitching to ensure the victory.

Despite Brewers Ace Yovani Gallardo's 12 strikeouts, Mets found offense with their injured lineup, scoring a single run.

Mets escaped from the Brewers with one win, leaving the series with a postive note.

Yesterday, Mets tried to make it consecutive wins against the Pirates.

First the weary wait in a rain delay, then the five-run deficeit, and exhaustion, summed to be detrimental factors the Mets had to deal with.

Not only that, when the Mets finally caught up with Pittsburg, K-Rod blew another save to force extra innings. 

When the 10th inning finally came, the fortunes of the Mets finallychanged.

With Fernando Tatis on second, Ryan Church lined up a single for the game winning run and made it two wins in row for the Metropolitans.

Mets always seem to suprise us with these out of nowhere victories. This club as hacked and wacked as it's been, has shown much effort and resilence.

Head "Gangsta" Jerry Manuel's speech seemed to of spurred a pleasant reaction, generating two wins. This reslient attiude the Mets are taking on brings some much needed hope, especially heading into the upcoming Phillies series.

Mets vs. Phillies ignite their rivalry at 7 p.m.
