The Mets salvaged a game of that horror-show series in San Juan despite a rough outing from Mike Pelfrey. It moves that wild-card magic number down to 84, so there's that. The Mets return to the U.S. for the start of a four-game series with the Nationals and the inevitable spatial disorientation of facing Livan Hernandez tonight and then Stephen Strasburg on Saturday. (Against R.A. Dickey, of all people!) Jose Reyes missed last night's game with an injury, but he should be fine. And every time anyone says Jose Reyes will be fine recovering from an injury, they're always right.
