Mets win finale at home against the Phillies

The New York Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 9-5.  They did not want to get swept at home by the Phillies. They came out on fire and had a 8-0 lead after two innings.  Jon Niese started and pitched a very good game, the bullpen struggled a little bit but with a big lead they were able to close out the game.  Jose Reyes magical season continued with four hits.  He is now batting 335 on the season, you think he is in a walk year and knows he may get traded??  Justin Turner continues to impress with two more hits and is hitting 330 on the season.  Daniel Murphy and Josh Thole each had three hits. 

The Mets will begin a three game series Monday night with the Pirates.  Dillon Gee will be on the mound in that one.  He will face Charlie Morton and the game is at 7:10PM.  R.A. Dickey had a bullpen session this morning and it went well.  He is scheduled to start on Tuesday but doesn't know yet if he will be making that start. 

Terry Collins said today that he hopes Johan Santana will be throwing batting practice in the next couple of weeks.  He has been throwing from 200 feet and off the slope of a mound. 

Carlos Beltran left the game with tightness in his hamstring.  Terry Collins said he expects him to be in the lineup on Monday night.  According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York doctors believe that Gary Carter has a Grade 4 glioblastoma which affects the brain and central nervous system.  It is inoperable but doctors are optimistic that they can shrink the tumors.
