The Mets had a 2-0 lead after six innings, but it was all downhill from there. Chris Young was very good through six innings, but he very quickly gave up a two-run home run to Chase Utley and a solo shot to Carlos Ruiz in the seventh inning to give the Phillies the lead. We've seen Young do this before.
We knew it was over when...
Miguel Batista took the mound to begin the eighth inning with the Mets trailing by just one run. Terry Collins should not use Batista in high-leverage situations, which has been obvious since he first proposed the idea nearly a month ago.
Nice job by MetsFan4Decades; her effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
