Mike Pelfrey: NL Player of the Week!

It just keeps getting better and better for this young man....what a run!

From SNY:

NEW YORK (TICKER) -After not allowing a run in 15 innings over two starts, New York Mets righthander Mike Pelfrey was named National League Player of the Week on Monday.

Pelfrey extended his winning streak to six games, going eight innings with six hits in Sunday's 7-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies. The winning streak is the longest for a New York pitcher since Steve Trachsel won seven straight starts from June 6-July 14, 2006.

Since May 31, Pelfrey has posted a 2.26 ERA in nine outings.

He has been part of a dominant run of pitching by the Mets, who have posted shutouts in four of their last six games. The only other time New York accomplished that feat was in 1969, when they posted four consecutive shutouts.

Last week, Pelfrey allowed nine hits with just one walk and 10 strikeouts. Overall, he is 8-6 with a 3.64 ERA in 18 starts this season.
