The Mets had a one-run lead at the end of the first inning and a two-run lead after the sixth inning, but the Phillies knotted the game in the top of the second and seventh innings, respectively. Philadelphia scored a run in the eighth to take its first lead of the game and added six more in the ninth.
We knew it was over when...
Ramon Ramirez served up a three-run home run to Jimmy Rollins in the ninth to stretch Philadelphia's lead to four.
It is only May 30, but the early returns on trade of Angel Pagan for Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez are not good.
Before the bullpen coughed up the game, Dillon Gee was very good once again. His strikeout and walk rates this year have been a pleasant surprise.
Lucas Duda hit a pair of home runs, the first of which came against Cliff Lee and gave the Mets a temporary lead.
Game Thread Roll Call
Nice job by BDMF; his effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
