Game #132: Mets 11, Phillies 3

What, you were expecting anything less from a lineup of Young-Murphy-Brown-Duda-Turner-den Dekker-Recker-Quintanilla-Torres?

Home runs by Anthony Recker and Andrew Brown and four hits from Daniel Murphy punctuated a brilliant afternoon for the Mets, who blew away the Phillies 11-3 to salvage a series split.

The Good Stuff:
  • In a game filled with offense, these New Yorkers stood out in the box score:
    • Eric Young (3-5, 3B, 2 R, 3 RBI)
    • Daniel Murphy (4-5, 2 2B, R, SB, 2 RBI)
    • Andrew Brown (2-5, SB, HR, 2 RBI)
    • Anthony Recker (1-2, 2 BB, HR, 3 R, 2 RBI)
  • Carlos Torres, supplied with ample run support (five Harvey Days' worth), earned the win with 6.2 innings of one-run, four hit ball, walking none and striking out six on 95 pitches.
  • Matt den Dekker made his much-delayed major league debut to the tune of a run, stolen base, and four putouts in center field.
The Bad Stuff:
  • How about the obvious: this would have been Matt Harvey's next start. Ouch.
  • Lucas Duda struck out twice in his first start since the beginning of the summer.
Final Analysis:
I don't really know how to explain let's just leave it at a fun anomaly of an afternoon. Carry on.
