Notes: Mets fans can settle with a 1 out of 3 win from the Phils. I mean come on, its the Phillies. One big argument you can make is that Reyes and Beltran were not playing, and they have been a key aspect latley. There was some sign of comeback in the 8th but they could not captailize. Up side? Still .500.
