Santana Dominates While Everyone is at Work

I didn't do a recap for the game yesterday because a 12:10 start means I'm working like everyone else, and couldn't "play hooky and go to Citi Field" like the Mets emails said. Mets won 4-0 in case you haven't heard by now (15 hours later).

The box score looks like Vintage Santana, complete game shut-out with 10 k's, including striking out the side in the 1st on 15 pitches.

And Beltran had a break-out game at the plate, going 3-3 with a double and a run batted in.

Mike Hessman took another 0-4 with 2 k's and his slash stats are: .136/.269/.318. I know it's a small sample size (22 at bats).

If the bullpen didn't implode and explode on Wednesday night, we could've swept the Rockies and this Phillies series could be a show-me series. Instead this turns into a must sweep series IF the season is to be saved. Pitching match-ups: Dickey vs Hamels Friday 7:10. TBA (Misch?) vs Halladay Saturday night 7:10, Pelfrey vs Kendrick Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN (8:10)
