Mets Drop First Game To Phillies 3-0

The Mets pitching was good, but the Phillies pitching was better. Brett Myers was the star of the show throwing eight shutout innings for the Phils.

Mike Pelfrey went seven inning giving up three runs (two earned). The Mets bullpen was perfect over the final two innings as well.

The only semblance of offense the Mets got was from Daniel Murphy going 2 for 4 with 2 doubles.

The Mets lead is back to 2 games over the Phils and the magic number is 20.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
