Mets Game 8: Win Over Phillies

Mets 5 Phillies 0

The Mets pound the last-place Phillies, winning the weekend series and lining up a sweep to be polished off on Sunday. However, the Mets gained no ground on the Nationals, who also won and remain a mere half-game ahead. This pennant race is really starting to heat up!


Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Phillies

Tonight’s Mets lineup against Phillies pitcher Vance Worley:

Jose Reyes – SS
Daniel Murphy – 2B
David Wright – 3B
Carlos Beltran – RF
Jason Bay – LF
Ike Davis – 1B
Josh Thole – C
Jason Pridie – CF
Mike Pelfrey – RHP

Worley pitched very well in two starts for Philly last year, and he posted a 2.78 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 25 Ks in 22 IP through 4 starts in AAA this year. His name sounds like it could be a brand of vacuum cleaners, no?
