Phillies Moyer Shuts Down Mets in 6-2 Win

Jamie Moyer was terrific and Pedro Martinez was utterly hittable. That’s the story of the Mets loss in the opener of a split double header.

The Mets managed to put two runs on the board after Moyers left the game. But it was too little too late.

Martinez was hit hard giving up six runs over four innings on seven hits. The bullpen worked the final five innings perfectly but Pedro had already lost the game early on.

The Mets lead in the NL East is down to one game with another one with the Phillies tonight on ESPN.

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.
