The Phillies thumped one of the hottest pitchers in baseball since June 4th, Jeremy Heffner had been sailing along with baseball's best ERA which was 1.76.
The Phillies dismantled that ERA last night and Heffner didn't get out of the second inning, cooling off the hot Mets that were winners of 5 of 8 games just before the All-Star Break.
Good thing the Phillies got a lot of runs on the board as the Mets didn't give up and battled back to a 13-8 margin. The game earned Kyle Kendrick his 9th victory on the season for the Phillies.
It's afternoon baseball today for the Phillies and the Mets at Citi Field at 1:10 PM today.
