Phillies 3, Mets 1: Kendrick Orders Code Red Of Mets' Lineup

Boring games such as this one are even worse when the Mets lose. The lineup customarily failed, against one of the worst starting pitchers maintaining a job in MLB, Kyle Kendrick. No runs against Roy Halladay? Understandable. One run against a pitcher with the fourth worst FIP in the league? Unacceptable. A Misch-esque start from Mike Pelfrey went to waste (seven innings, three runs, one strikeout, no walks). Via fxcarden and ESPN, I present your 2010 Mets offense:

The Mets are now 10 games behind the NL East leading Braves and eight games behind the Wild Card leading Phillies and Giants. They head to Houston this week for a four game set with the 'Stros. Monday's pitching match-up is Jon Niese vs. Wandy Rodriguez.

Scoring once and winning is awfully tricky
When the man on the mound is not R.A. Dickey
