Pelfrey, Mets Sweep Pirates

Flushing, NY (Sports Network) – Mike Pelfrey worked seven sharp innings and drove in the go-ahead run to lead New York to a 6-2 win over Pittsburgh to finish off a four-game series sweep.

Pelfrey (15-9) added to his career-high win total by yielding a pair of runs on six hits while walking four and fanning four as the Mets completed their first four-game sweep at home since August 15-18, 2003 over Colorado.

Lucas Duda doubled twice, drove in two runs and scored the decisive run for New York, which last swept a four-game set from Pittsburgh June 19-22, 1997 at Shea Stadium.

Wilfredo Ledezman (0-3) suffered the loss after yielding the game-winning run in the sixth inning for the Pirates, who have lost six out of seven to fall 50 games below the .500 mark.
