    Hernandez had three errors (2 not scored as errors). That was the game.

    well, the hernandez plays added to the total of bad phillies baseball vs mets last night. adding to that total bad was bryce harper swinging at first pitch after the mets gave the phils the tie with the bases loaded walk (all the other bases filled with walked phillies). in that situation, at least 4 walks by met pitching in the inning, you’d think harper would wait for a two strike count. and the rhys hoskins fielding play/error: rhys didn’t move trying to backhand a scorched gounder rather that move his body into the path of the ball. ryan howard, and or jim tome were better fielding first basemen than rhys. designated pinch hitter in nl anyone? i think even dave king kong kingman (anyone remember him?)may have had a better glove.

    Equally disconcerting was that Rhys looked lost at plate registering four Ks.
