Phillies Home Schedule Ends with Loss to Mets

It was a fitting end to the home schedule. Another loss for the Phillies.

They fell to the Mets 4-3 and were swept, despite eight strikeouts over seven innings from Cliff Lee. After 81 games at home, the Phillies finished the year at 43-38.

On offense, Domonic Brown finished the day 1-for-2 with two walks, but the rest of the offense was unable to provide much as the team finished 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position.

As the old adage goes, there’s always next year. Over 3 million people watched baseball at Citizens Bank Park here, meaning interest in the team is still high. In just a week, the fun begins.

Once the remaining games on the road are done, Ruben Amaro Jr’s. job is to fix what ails this team. Can it be done?
