Game #154: Mets 5, Phillies 4 (7)

It was the second time this season Dillon Gee earned a "complete game." This time he was on the right side of the shortness.

Home runs by David Wright and Daniel Murphy backed Gee's six innings as the Mets took a rain-shortened affair from the Phillies 5-4 to clinch their final division series of the season.

The Good Stuff:
  • Down 1-0 in the 4th, David Wright got his team on the board with his second home run in as many days back from the DL to make it 1-1.
  • Daniel Murphy led off a big 6th inning with a solo home run.
    • Wright followed with a single, then after Lucas Duda was hit by a pitch, Juan Lagares laced a two-run triple. Lagares then came home on Travis d'Arnaud's double to cap a four-run inning.
  • Philadelphia scored three in the bottom of the 6th, but the rain came in the top of the 7th to win it for the New Yorkers.
The Bad Stuff:
  • Dillon Gee picked up his 12th W of the season but wasn't great doing it, allowing four runs on seven hits in his six innings, walking none and striking out three on 84 pitches.
Final Analysis:
It's been a rough year for the Mets, but at least they get to finish off 2013 on a high note against their bitter NL East rivals. A sweep tomorrow would make it even sweeter.
