Game 2 Recap: Phillies Down Mets, 2-1

By Unknown author

Unlike the night before against youngster Vance Worley, the Mets were not blown out of the water this time around. As expected, Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay pitched a complete game, giving up seven hits, one earned-run, one walk, while striking out eight batters. The Mets were only able to score one run, which came in the fourth inning on a series of singles. After the Carlos Beltran RBI-single, Jason Bay, Ike Davis, and then Josh Thole all made outs, leaving two men on-base. Given that the Mets only had three more base runners the rest of the game, the team should have really cashed in when they had the chance.


  • Carlos Beltran went 2-4 with a RBI-single. He knocked in the lone run.
  • David Wright went 1-3 with a walk.
  • Jon Niese pitched 6.3 inning, giving up six hits, two earned-runs, two walks, and struck-out three batters.
  • The Mets bullpen (Taylor Buchholz, Tim Byrdak, and Jason Isringhausen) combined for 1.6 innings of scoreless baseball.
