Mets trounce Phils at home

The Phillies try to score, it looked if Dickerson had snuck his hand in before being tagged out, but even after replay the runner was ruled out

Nola pitches very well but the Phillies offense couldn't do much on offense early in the game

Nola and the Phillies can't solve the Mets, once bullpen is introduced. It's a story we've heard a lot this year, the Phillies stay close to a team in a game that Aaron Nola is pitching and then the bullpen comes in and it becomes a completely different game.

That's what happened last night, as the Phillies couldn't hit Zack Wheeler, the Phillies finished 5-13 with RISP but for most of the game, the Phillies couldn't score a runner even though they had many opportunities.  They lost by a final score of 11-5.

In the top of the 8th the bullpen gave up 5 runs, then in the top of the 9th it was the same thing, the Phillies bullpen is an unpredictable bunch of pitchers, but last night, it was nothing but bad.

This seems like a recap of all the problems the Phillies have had all year, they can't score at times, and have runners to do it, and the bullpen is not reliable. Those two glaring deficiencies have shown themselves all year.
