Mets’ Bullpen Hammered in 10-6 Loss To Phillies

Despite several injuries to key players, the Mets’ weakest link so far this season has been their healthy bullpen. It showed again on Wednesday night as the Phillies rallied for a 10-6 win over the Mets at Citi Field.

After a Lucas Duda hit a two-out, two-run home run off of Cliff Lee that gave the Mets a 3-1 advantage in the sixth inning, Bobby Parnell relieved Dillion Gee and quickly gave up a game tying two-run homer to pinch hitter Carlos Ruiz.

Jon Rauch allowed the Phillies to take a 4-3 lead in the seventh before Tim Byrdak, Ramon Ramirez and Chris Schwinden combined to allow six runs in the ninth inning, including a three-run shot off the bat of Jimmy Rollins.

Antonio Bastardo (2-1) was credited with the victory after Lee’s exited in the seventh trailing 3-1. Lee (0-2) is still winless in eight starts this year.

Dillion Gee threw 6 2/3 innings giving up just a second inning homer to Ty Wiggington. He was also charged with a run in the two-run blast from Ruiz.

The Mets scored three in the ninth on Duda’s second homer of the game, a solo-shot, and RBIs from Andrew Torres and Daniel Murphy.

New York won five of six in Philadelphia before dropping two of three in this series at home.

The Mets (28-23) have Thursday off before wrapping up their home stand with a four game series against the Cardinals.
