The Phillies offense wasn't very impressive between innings two and eight, despite chasing the Mets starter after four and two-thirds innings. The day seemed like it would go well at the start, with Jimmy Rollins leading off the game with a home run, one day after the team scored 13 runs. The Phillies scored in the fifth, as Chase Utley hit a sacrifice fly to score Hamels, before slumbering until the ninth. After Michael Young reached on a fielding error in the ninth things got a bit interesting, as Utley clubbed his thirteenth home run of the season. Dom Brown followed that up with a double before the Mets finally ended the game, winning 5 to 4.
The Phillies will now head into tomorrow afternoons contest looking to take the series two to one. Tomorrow's series finale is set up to be a pitchers duel, as All Stars Cliff Lee and Matt Harvey will make the start for their respective squads. So the Phillies lost today, but you know what they say, every dog (or Mutt) has its day.
