Final Score: Phillies 6, Mets 5—Chris Young's error ends long, miserable game

New, 135 comments

The Mets and Phillies played a very long game of baseball, and Young's error opened the door for the Phillies to win it in the fourteenth inning.

Rich Schultz

The Mets lost to the Phillies in fourteen innings. Long after Rafael Montero departed from a poor start, the Phillies walked off the Mets thanks in large part to Chris Young dropping a routine fly ball in right field to begin the bottom of the fourteenth.

The Mets once led the game 3-0, and after blowing that lead, they got back on top at 5-4. But the Phillies tied the game at five, and neither team scored until Reid Brignac’s walk-off single with the bases loaded in the fourteenth. If you missed the game, consider yourself lucky.
