Pelfrey And The First

Marty Noble at, writes about Mike Pelfrey and his problem with the first inning:

Mike Pelfrey retired the side in the first inning of his first start this season. Since then, the Mets rookie starter has been undone by the first. He allowed a run in the first Sunday against the Diamondbacks; so now he has allowed at least one in the first four straight starts. His first inning performances have yielded these figures: a 15.75 ERA, .500 on-base average, .666 slugging percentage and .333 batting average.
