New York- The Philadelphia Phillies (4-4) came to town and started up where they left off last season. The New York Mets (2-4) were expecting to get their final season in Shea Stadium started with a bang, but it didn’t turn out that way. The Phillies took the first game of a three game series 5-2.
Scott Schoenweiss recorded his first blown save and loss of the season. Carlos Delgado homered early in the game but didn’t help Schoenweis with a throwing error that led to a three run seventh for the Phillies.
Before the game Matt Wise was placed on the 15-day disabled list and Carlos Muniz was called up and pitched the ninth.
