LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jason Bay homered twice and drove in four runs, Carlos Beltran also went deep and Mike Pelfrey stranded seven runners in scoring position through six gritty innings, leading the New York Mets to a 6-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.
Pelfrey (5-7) scattered five hits and escaped bases-loaded jams in the fourth and fifth. The right-hander, who came in having beaten every NL team except the Dodgers, won on the road for the first time since May 10 at Colorado, his only other victory away from home this season in nine decisions.
Ted Lilly (5-9) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings after getting an extra day’s rest because of a tender elbow.
