Unhappy Recap: Phillies 3 Mets 0

The losing streak now stands at 3. Over that span the Mets have been outscored 27-4. No one other than Jose Reyes has driven in a run. The team is batting .172 (16-93, with exactly 31 at bats in each game), and even worse 3-32 with men on base. They are 0-8 with runners in scoring position.

At least this game only last two hours and three minutes. Tom Glavine helped with that, as even though he didn't get the win he clearly has righted himself with three good starts (1-2, 3.60 ERA) after a horrible July.

The Mets are going to need Glavine to get back to his early season form as Pedro is back on the DL, this time for his calf injury.

The rotation's new stopper, John Maine, tries to end the skid.
