Pelfrey, Mets aim for fourth straight win

Sep 24, 2007 - 2:26 PM Washington (69-87) at NY Mets (87-68) 7:10 pm EDT

FLUSHING, New York (Ticker) -- Rookie Mike Pelfrey could not buy a win for most of the season. Now the New York Mets are depending on him to win an important game.

Pelfrey takes the hill as the Mets aim for their fourth straight win when they open a three-game series with the Washington Nationals on Monday.

Closer Billy Wagner allowed a game-tying home run to Dan Uggla in the ninth, but David Wright singled home the winning run in the 11th as the Mets posted a 7-6 win over Florida on Sunday.

Pelfrey (3-7, 5.24 ERA) won his third straight decision on Wednesday, allowing three runs and nine hits in five innings against Washington. However, things did not start well for the 24-year-old, as he went 0-7 in his first 10 starts.

New York, which leads the Philadelphia Phillies (85-71) by 2 1/2 games in the National League East, would like to exact some revenge after losing two of three to Washington last week.

The Nationals, who scored 25 runs in the three-game series vs. New York last week, send rookie Matt Chico to the mound. Chico (5-9, 4.74) is winless in his last seven starts and is 1-2 with a 6.60 ERA in three career starts vs. the Mets.
