Mets 8, Phillies 0
Game 76 - Sunday Afternoon, June 23rd in Philadelphia
Record - 36-40, 3rd Place, 7 1/2 games behind the Braves
Colossal Post-Vacation Catch-Up, Part 2 of 9
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies were demolished by Matt Harvey and the Mets, 8-0.
What It Means: This was our first full day of vacation, and I was grateful I didn't have to witness any of this debacle.
What Went Wrong: The Phils managed four hits against the Mets, while Mets hitters pounded out 12 hits - nine of which went for extra bases. Starter John Lannan was charged with six runs (four earned) in his five innings of work.
Featured Card: Reliever J.C. Ramirez, acquired from the Mariners in the ill-advised Cliff Lee deal back in December 2009, made his Major League debut in this game. Ramirez had struggled in Triple-A, but he was light's out in his debut, striking out the side in his sole inning of work. His two mainstream Phillies cards (to date) appear in the 2011 Bowman Chrome Prospects set and the 2011 Topps Heritage Minor League set.
