The Mets and Phillies play game two this evening after the Mets pulled within one game of a tie for third place in the NL East standings. Daisuke Matsuzaka picked up his second win of the season as the Mets held on for a 6-4 victory in the series opener on Friday night.

David Wright crushed a two-run opposite field home run in his first at-bat since Aug. 2. The home run was the 221st of Wright’s career, moving him past Mike Piazza and into second place on the Mets’ all-time home run list, behind Darryl Strawberry, who had 252 homers with the Mets. Wright finished 2-for-5 in his return.
