Mets Go Ahead 3-0 in 7th, Knock Hamels Out of Game

By Nicholas Stix

With one out, and aided by a double-play grounder that Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco booted, Mets leadoff man Jose Reyes hit an inside cut fastball into the left field corner for a double, knocking in Henry Blanco and pinch-hitter Fernando Tatis. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel then yanked Cole Hamels, and replaced him with Chad Durban.

Jason Bay just got looking, and there are now two outs in the seventh. Charlie Manuel is now bringing in the lefthander, Bastardo (hey, that's his name), to pitch to the lefty-hitting Davis. Never mind that Davis beats lefties like a drum, at least when Andy Fletcher isn't behind the disk.

Mets pitchers have thrown 25 striaght scoreless innings and counting against the Phillies.
