Unhappy Recap: Phillies 11 Mets 4

Are you kidding me? Mama said there'd be one day like this, not two in a row. This is why you want a 15 game lead.

El Duque followed in Pedro's footsteps and absolutely sucked. He gave up runs in every inning, 11 in total. But since the bullpen was dead from the night before he had to pull a Marquis and stay in the game to get his brains beaten in. It was the most runs El Duque has ever given up in a game. The last time a Mets pitcher gave up 11 runs in a game was 1967. El Duque's ERA ballooned to 5.54.

Ay dios Mio
Que Lastima

The biggest shame of it all was that it overshadowed maybe the best game in Jose Reyes' career. Reyes blasted 3 homers and drove in 4 runs. Including his grand slam a couple weeks ago he's becoming to them what Pat Burrell is to the Mets. Reyes now has 14 homers and 59 RBI. He's the only Met with an RBI through the first two games of this series.

HR #1
HR #2

Lastings Milledge is horrible in the outfield. He misplayed almost every ball that came his way. He also is only batting .225. If Floyd weren't hurt Milledge would be back in Norfolk and Endy Chavez would be playing everyday in right.
