Maine didn’t have good control at all. He only went 4 2/3 innings and was over 100 pitches. Burgos came in to relieve him and threw gas on the fire. He gave up a three run homer to Ryan Howard. Burgos’ ERA is now a whopping 8.10.
The Mets blew the game open in the eighth off Geoff Geary and Jon Leiber. David Wright had the only extra base hit of the game for the Mets, a double. The inning was highlighted by a Jimmy Rollins error to keep the Mets rally going. The crowd celebrated with a well deserved Jim-my Roll-ins chant.
The Mets record is now 5-2 and the Phillies are 1-6. Click here for the full story and the box score.
