Unhappy Recap: Phillies 13 Mets 0

Disaster. Mama said there'll be days like this, there'll my mama said.

From the very beginning nothing went right. 6 runs in the first inning helped by a infield hit by Rollins (a better throw might have had him) 2 hit batsmen and a balk, it all blew up in Pedro's face. Beltran even misplayed a ball to let the Phillies hammer the final nail in Pedro's coffin.

This was the second shortest outing of his career (he gave up 5 runs in 2/3 inning on my 17th birtday).

Pedro also strained his right calf. He said he felt a twinge but thought it would get better. It didn't. Hopefully this won't become a lingering issue. But so far this year he has had injuries to his toe, hip and calf.

For once Darren Oliver wasn't much better. Normally he comes into games like this and keeps them close. In this one he allowed 7 runs including homers to Delluci, Victorino and Rollins.

The Mets managed only four hits against Cole Hamels.

Thankfully, tomorrow is another day, and another game.
