Mets 6, Phillies 5
Game 126 - Tuesday Night, August 25th in Philadelphia
Record - 50-76, 5th Place, 19 1/2 games behind the Mets
One Sentence Summary: The Mets came from behind again to drop the Phillies by a score of 6-5.
What It Means: The Phillies have played the Mets 11 times so far this season. They are now 1-10 in those games. That's not good.
What Happened: Jerome Williams continued to under perform, allowing five runs (four earned) in his 5 1/3 innings of work and slightly increasing his ERA for the season to 6.13. The Phillies received home runs from Freddy Galvis (6) and Ryan Howard (21), but it wasn't enough to hold off the Mets.
Featured Card: Bench coach Larry Bowa absolutely lost his mind in the seventh inning after Mets reliever Hansel Robles quick pitched Darin Ruf. Bowa began yelling at Robles, and then the home plate umpire and was quickly tossed for his efforts. On his way out, he made a point to threaten Mets first baseman Daniel Murphy with a ball in the ribs for Murphy's excessively flipped bat following a home run on Monday night. This was a circa-2004, full-blown, red-faced, f-bomb dropping explosion from Bowa and I'll admit it was nice to see a little fire from the Phillies dugout.
