The Mets broke their losing streak and got the weekend off to a good start with a 5-4 comeback win. Mike Pelfrey wasn't great, but he managed to make it into the seventh inning while allowing three runs. Justin Turner put the Mets ahead 4-3 in the fifth with a RBI double. The bullpen protected the one-run lead into the 9th, but Manny Acosta couldn't close the door on Chicago. With two outs, Darwin Barney singled home the tying run, but Acosta escaped further damage and the game went to the bottom of the 9th. Nick Evans led off with a single and was replaced by a pinch runner, Jason Pridle. Pridle advanced to second on a sac bunt, but Ruben Tejada lined out for the second out of the inning. The Cubs chose to intentionally walk Jose Reyes bringing Turner back to the plate. Turner delivered again, singling home Pridle with the winning run.
