BALTIMORE (AP) – David Wright hit two homers, Chris Carter and Jason Bay also connected, and the New York Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-4 Sunday for a three-game sweep. It was Carter’s second three-run home run of the series while batting as the designated hitter.
Bay entered in an 0-for-16 skid before going 4 for 4 with four runs scored. Wright and Alex Cora each had three of New York’s season-high 18 hits.
Mike Pelfrey (9-1) gave up three runs, nine hits and three walks in six rocky innings but received enough offensive support to win his fifth straight decision.
The Mets outscored Baltimore 19-6 during their first three-game sweep on the road since September 2008, in Milwaukee. New York has won eight of nine to move a season-high seven games over .500 (35-28).
