Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the top of the 7th when the Mets scored 4 runs to go up 8-1 at the time. The key moment in the inning was an Angel Pagan two-run triple. When playing in Philadelphia you can never be sure if the game was out of reach so tack on runs are very important.
Game Ball: Jon Niese: 7 IP | 4 H | 1 ER | 1 BB | 7 SO
Mets have won 8 games in a row.
Rod Barajas had two home runs in the game. His second multiple home run game of the season.
The Mets had eight extra base hits in the game.
Defense: Both Jason Bay and Jeff Francoeur made outstanding catches in the 2nd inning. If those guys don’t make those two catches this could have been a much different game tonight.
Jeff Francoeur left the game after being hit by a pitch on the arm. The early reports are he is day-to-day.
