2005 Topps Total #109 Vicente Padilla

Mets 7, Phillies 0
Game 49 - Wednesday Afternoon, May 27th in Flushing
Record - 19-30

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies looked absolutely confused by the game of baseball in this lopsided 7-0 loss to the Mets.

What It Means:  The team just wrapped up a season-long stretch of 20 games without an off day and they'll celebrate by taking the day off today.  Surprisingly enough, the Phillies went 9-11 over the 20 game stretch which isn't all that bad.  The six-game winning streak, now a distant memory, certainly helped.

What Happened:  Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard dominated the Phillies in this game, allowing just six hits in his 7 1/3 innings pitched.  He also went 3 for 3 at the plate with a long home run off Phillies starting pitcher Sean O'Sullivan.

Featured Card:  Courtesy of the Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Breen, O'Sullivan became the first Phillies pitcher to allow four home runs and at least seven earned runs since Vicente Padilla did it over ten years ago on April 19, 2005.  So he's got that going for him.
