The Phillies lost a tough, tooth and nails type of ballgame last night in New York for the Fightin Phils first trip to Citi Field. Chan Ho Park had another quality start last night, but luck and a combination of a Phillies error spelled defeat for the Phils.Curiously, this game was not a sellout at 37,600 at Citi Field. Could Mets fans be sending a signal that prices are too high for tickets? Time will tell that, also the Mets aren't exactly setting the NL East on fire as of yet either.
Scott Eyre got the loss in the game, and for the Mets, Johan Santana lowered his ERA to 0.91.
Game 2 of this short series tonight at 7:10pm
