Uh… We won? But we never beat the Phillies.
Hampton went tonight, and since he’s a deep-cover Mets operative, maybe he’s not with the program. Anyway, he went six and allowed just two runs on six hits and three walks (striking out four). Someone’s going to give the guy a major league contract this winter. It better not be Frank Wren, or I can’t be held responsible for what happens.
KJ was in the middle of most of the action. In the first, he singled in Slugging Third Baseman Martin Prado, who had doubled in front of him. In the third, he scored on a throwing error by Hamels, making the score 2-1. Kotchman hit a solo homer in the sixth to make it 3-1, and the Phillies were only able to get one more run. Ohman, Bennett, and Gonzalez finished up with no real problems — just a couple of walks.
Chipper didn’t play, and remains at .364 with a .468 OBP. Pujols is 1-2 with a walk (.348) and will hit at least once more tonight.
