The Mets Express rolled through Philly this week leaving another mangled ballclub in its wake.
Game 1: Mets 9, Phillies 7
Tom Glavine's line from Game 1:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 4.1 7 4 4 3 1 4 110-68 31Second-straight crummy start by Glavine, who was even worse in posting a game score of 28 against the Dodgers on June 7th. The last start was on short rest and this one was on long rest, so apparently the guy just needs regular rest.

Game 2: Mets 9, Phillies 3
Orlando Hernandez's line from Game 2:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 3.0 4 2 2 0 3 1 64-36 46El Duque left following the hour-long rain delay and was replaced by Darren Oliver, who matched Hernandez's three innings. Here is Oliver's line:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 3.0 2 1 1 1 2 0 49-36 50Oliver doesn't really qualify for a game score because he didn't start the game, but I calculated it for him anyway.
- Hitting: David Wright, 12.3% WPA
- Pitching: Darren Oliver, 8.9% WPA

Game 3: Mets 5, Phillies 4
Steve Trachsel's line from Game 3:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 6.0 6 4 4 2 0 2 104-62 42As our straw poll clearly illustrates, you guys have very little confidence in Steve Trachsel to keep the Mets in a ballgame. This particular start, while not good by any stretch, was borderline decent. Trax wasn't especially effective, but he somehow managed to leave with a lead that the Mets' bullpen held onto.
