The New York Mets came back in the 9th inning to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 6-5. The Mets are now seven games over .500, with three games left until the all-star break.
Winning Pitcher: Bobby Parnell (2-1, 2.91) was the winning pitcher for the Mets tonight.
Losing Pitcher: Jonathan Papelbon (2-3, 3.45) first blew the save, and then received his third loss of the season.
R.A. Dickey pitched seven innings, however did not look like his usual self. Dickey gave up 5 earned runs, but still gave the Mets seven innings and did keep them in the game.
The Mets won the game on a walk-off, bases loaded, texas leaguer (bloop single) off the bat of the great David Wright. Daniel Murphy tied the game in the at-bat before Wright, which was a hit right back at Papelbon that hit off of him and it rolled to far away from him to make a play.
The Mets did what they have been doing all year, FIGHT, FIGHT, and FIGHT. The at-bats that Ike Davis, Jordany Valdespin, Ruben Tejada, Daniel Murphy, and David Wright had in that 9th were definitely something special.
