The fact that this all went down against the Phillies (and Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee) just makes it all the better. The Mets smacked them around, and I hope the Phillies are a bit embarrassed and concerned about the direction of their season.
In regards to individual players, Ike looked strong at the plate tonight. He had a nice swing on a double earlier in the game. Later, he teed off on a pitch down in the zone, which he had been missing earlier in the year, but tonight he crushed it for a home run.
Hat’s off to Manny Acosta, as well, who has struggled at times this season, but tonight he did a terrific job getting a double play in a scoreless seventh inning, after the Mets had scored three runs in the top of the inning to take the lead and continue momentum.
