Mets 6 - Phillies 3
Jack Klugman says, "Suck it, Philly!"
The Mets swept the day/night double header against Philadelphia. In taking game 2, the Mets handed the Phillies their 8th loss in a row since clinching the division.
Dillon Gee got knocked around early and quickly fell behind 3-0. The Met bats battled and put up 6 runs off of the Phillies' lazy susan rotation of pitchers. With the support, Gee settled down and completed 6 innings to get his 13th win of the year.
This was the first time a Met rookie has won 13 games or more since Dwight Gooden won 17 in his remarkable 1984 rookie season.
Mets Blob was happy to see the Mets bounce back after their last horrific home stand and take 2 from Philadelphia at Citi Field. It's true these games mean nothing in the standings, but it is great to see the Mets take a little piss on the Philly postseason parade. We can only hope they carry some of this doubt with them into the playoffs.
However, Mets Blob sees the Phillies' losing streak coming to an end on Sunday when Roy "The Robot" Halladay faces Mike "The Mental Cripple" Pelfrey. I think we all know how that's going to turn out. The hand licking begins at 2:10pm Sunday.
