In all, Kendrick tossed six innings and only allowed five hits. With the help of four walks and one costly Frandsen error, the Mets were able to tally five runs on him however, albeit only one earned. Zach Miner and Justin De Fratus tossed a scoreless seventh and eighth respectively, but the game was all but sealed for the Mets with a lackluster Phillies offense.
The Phillies offense managed only three hits all game as Jon Niese shut them out. Jimmy Rollins was 1 for 3 on the evening and also collected the Phillies only walk with two outs in the ninth. Michael Young had a 2 for 3 night at the plate that included his 22nd double of the season, but with no further signs of life, the Phillies were shut down.
The Phillies will look to bounce back tomorrow in game three of this four game set at Citi Field. Cole Hamels will make the start for the Phillies against Daisuke Matsuzaka.
