Phillies 2 – Mets 0 July 5, 2009

The Phillies finished off the sweep against the lifeless Mets today in Philly. Once again, Johan Santana was good but the Mets had nothing else to back him up. Santana went 7 i innings giving up a leadoff homer to Jimmy Rollins and a solo shot to Chase Utley in the sixth. He only allowed 3 hits in the game.

The Mets got shutout and only had 4 hits so there isn’t much offense to talk about. Luis Castillo was 2 for 2 and Santana had one of the hits. That tells you how miserable the Mets offense is right now. The Mets only scored 3 runs in the entire series in Philly.

The Mets are off tomorrow with the Dodgers coming to town for three games starting Tuesday.

  1. Well Dave, I now completely agree with you about cutting ties with Fernando Tatis. Tatis should only pinch hit with 2 outs. If there are runners on base with less than 2 outs, there is better than a 50/50 chance that he’ll GIDP. 11 double plays this season! in a limited role!!
