Final Score: Phillies 6, Mets 0—Mets bats go silent against Hamels

Cole Hamels pitched eight shutout innings, while Dillon Gee and Josh Edgin combined to serve up three home runs to help the Phillies even the series at a game apiece.

Perhaps sensing that it might be his final bow in Phillies uniform, Cole Hamels shut down the Mets offense for eight innings and helped Philadelphia get a 6-0 win at Citi Field tonight.

Though Hamels scattered six hits over the first four innings, the Mets failed to put anything together against a pitcher that had a 5.06 ERA against them over his last three seasons. He struck out eight, walked no one, and retired the last thirteen Mets he saw in order.

For most of the game, Dillon Gee's performance represented a marked improvement over his last two starts. Through six innings, the only runs he allowed were on two solo homers by Jimmy Rollins and Grady Sizemore. In the seventh, however, he left the game having loaded the bases with one out. Josh Edgin then came in to face Chase Utley, who promptly hit a grand slam to put the game out of reach for the Mets.
