Phils beat Colon for first time in 2015 last night
Kudos for the Phillies, last night, they beat Bartolo Colon and handed him his 13th loss of the year. That's something that the Phillies couldn't do for much of the regular season as the Phils have just won 3 games of 17 played against the Mets for the 2015 season. The Mets are now 6-2 against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park with 2 more to play.
Colon brought a 4-0 record, and 2.33 ERA in against the Phils this year, it's incredible that the Phillies really were in effective against him nearly all year. It's a streak that ended last night, thanks to a first inning HR by Darin Ruf and then protecting that lead for most of the game and ending with a 4-3 victory.
The attendance was listed in the box score at 15,277 but there were many empty seats as a threat of rain and windy weather chased many fans away from the game early.
The Phils had some bright spots in this game, Odubel Herrera went 4-4 in the game, ending a nasty 0-10 streak he brought into the game. Herrera raised his BA from .287 to .293 on the year with the 4-hit night.
The Mets were 1-10 in the RISP department, while Lucas Duda hit 2 HR to pace the Mets but it wasn't enough. Cespedes went 0-5 last night.
