The Mets five game winning streak ended last night when the Phillies managed to hold on to a 5-4 lead and avoid a sweep.
The Mets did battle back from a 4-0 deficit and a less than stellar start from Mike Pelfrey. After tying the score in the top of the 6th, Pedro Feliciano gave back the lead for good when he surrendered a solo home run to Pedro Feliz in the seventh.
The Phillies and Mets will not play again until July. So far in 2008, the Mets have taken 4 of 6 from the Phillies and played with some fire. Good signs.
Now the Mets continue their road trip with games tonight and tomorrow in Chicago, with two more against the Nationals before heading home for the weekend. Loge13 original Ross Jones should be at the Wrigley games so I expect a full report. And NatKiller ought to have a few words to say from DC. Send photos, boys.
