Phillies avoid embarrassment in 11-7 loss to Mets

amd_josereyes.jpgAlong with the rest of the working world on this beautiful Labor Day, the Phillies took the day off, too, with the exception for one inning. Mark Leiter, who took the ball for the Phils, was beat down early and often. Leiter allowed two home runs in third to Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera to make the score 4-0. Four Mets players tallied multi-hit games, the best of which came from Brandon Nimmo, who went 3-for-4 with two RBI. Leiter hit the showers early, going just 3.1 innings, while surrendering eight runs on nine hits. It was a 10-0 game in the fourth

The one inning the Phillies decided to show up was the sixth, when they put up a four spot thanks to a Hyun Soo Kim two-RBI double. Odubel Herrera, who was activated from the DL today, extended his hitting streak to 18 games with a nine-pitch RBI single to right as a pinch-hitter.

    The Phillies are quietly showing themselves to be contenders next season … almost playing .500 baseball since the All-Star Break. And, in this case, to go from down 10-0 to lose 11-7 is very impressive. They took 3 out of 4 from the Fish … and almost made it a SWEEP!! came back from 10-4 to lose 10-9 . They are a quality pitcher or two away from replaying the 2007 season! And we remember what happened after that!

    In a meaningless game for both clubs except for evaluating their young prospects in play, the Phillies again sleepwalk throughout the game with lackluster effort. The Phillies pitching especially with the starter continued their inconsistency. Perhaps the Phillies organization on down to the manager are thinking of tanking the rest of the remaining games in September to insure of having the worst record in baseball and thus qualify for the top pick in the MLB draft next June (2018). Certainly the Phillies manager act as if that is the case when he allow Leiter to stay in too long and continue his pathetic performance on the mound. The game got out of hand quickly and became an entertaining laughter for the Mets fans to enjoy on labor Day.
