The New York Mets were shutout by the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 on Saturday night. The Phils earned some retribution, as the Mets did the same to them yesterday. They continue to have trouble putting together an honest winning streak, as they get buried further and further in their division and wild card standings.

Initial Reaction:

Pat Misch took the mound against Roy Halladay in the middle contest of the three-game set. Halladay was at the top of his game, so Misch had no chance at outperforming him.

The Mets offense was idle, incapable of getting anything going against the Phillies ace. It was expected, but at least show some form of life…

David Wright was really hearing the boos tonight. Maybe he deserves it?

Positives From The Game:

Pat Misch: The Triple-A Buffalo call-up went six innings allowing four runs (one earned) on eight hits and two walks. The errors really killed Misch tonight.

Negatives From The Game:

Errors: Three runs were allowed off errors by Ruben Tejada and David Wright. Pat Misch also made a defensive blunder.

No Offense: The Mets lineup manufactured only six hits in the entire ballgame, along with getting struck out on ten occasions. No player had more than one hit. The team left eleven runners on base.
