Both Teams go Down
They scored two quick goals at the beginning of the 3rd period to cut the deficit to a goal but were unable to get the equalizer. Jose Theodore made some really nice saves on Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk at the end of the game. The series is now tied at one with the series heading to New Jersey.
The Mets had a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning against the Phillies but some bad defense and ineffective relief pitching did them in as the Phillies scored five runs in the eighth inning. Mike Pelfrey only gave up one run in six innings but the Mets never scored a run after the first inning. Ike Davis hit a two run homer off Cole Hamels but Hamels shut the Mets down the rest of the way. The loss puts the Mets at 6-3 on the season.
