Meet the Mets
Dillon Gee got rocked by the Phillies, putting the Mets deep into a 7-1 hole, but they made a valiant comeback, scoring four runs in the seventh and two in the ninth off of Jonathan Papelbon to tie things up. Unfortunately, Carlos Torres served up a solo home run to Kevin Frandsen on the second pitch of the bottom of the ninth and the Mets ended up losing 8-7. Great comeback but David Wright says that there are no moral victories in baseball. I think I remember Tom Hanks saying that.
In injury news, Lucas Duda was placed on the disabled list with an intercostal injury. The team promoted Zach Lutz from Las Vegas in his place. In better news, Tim Byrdak made his first rehab appearance with the GCL Mets.
