PORT ST. LUCIE, FLA. (AP) - Mets pitcher Mike Pelfrey is back on track after missing a turn in the rotation because of a muscle strain in his lower left leg.

Pelfrey pitched four scoreless innings in New York’s 6-2 loss to the Washington Nationals on Saturday. He gave up two hits and two walks with one strikeout in his first game since March 4.

The Nationals didn’t take a lead until their six-run ninth inning.
