After coming back from six runs down to tie the game 7-7 in the top of the ninth, Carlos Torres served up a leadoff home run to Kevin Frandsen in the bottom of the inning and the Mets lost to the Phillies by the score of 8-7.
Dillon Gee started for the Mets and he got ripped for six runs in five innings, including two home runs to his nemesis Ryan Howard and one to Michael Young. Howard is now 7-for-15 with six home runs and 14 RBIs in his career against Gee. The Met righthander allowed eight hits, walked none and struck out four and saw his ERA rise to 4.82 for the season.
Daniel Murphy had a pair of hits in the game and also stole two bases, while Omar Quintanilla went 3-for-4 and scored two runs. Eric Young Jr. continued to produce in the leadoff spot with a pair of hits and RBIs.
You can’t win them all, but this one was certainly winnable for the Mets. I’d mention the terrible calls at home plate by the ump, but he was equally as terrible against the Phillies so it kind of evened out.
