The run came in the first inning. New York led 2-1 after the first inning after a two-run shot by Ike Davis. The Mets wouldn't score again and had their remaining seven hits scattered by Phillies' pitchers. After Pelfrey exited the game, Ramon Martinez gave up two runs in the seventh inning which led him to be charged with a blown save and the loss in the game. Cole Hamels got the win for Philadelphia. He had 10 strikeouts, one walk and two earned runs in 7 innings.
Mets outfielder Jason Bay was scratched before the game with a jammed right ring finger. X-rays taken on the finger were negative.
