The New York Mets fail to get Dickey to his 19th win in loss to the Philadelphia Phillies

The New York Mets were defeated by the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 3-1 on Monday night. The game took place at Citi Field in Flushing, New York. R.A. Dickey started for the Mets and pitched pretty well. The bullpen was good and Daniel Murphy produced the Mets offense. Cliff Lee started for the Phillies and was really good and Jonathan Papelbon closed it out. The Phillies offense was led by Chase Utley and Dominick Brown. 
Dickey lost his sixth game of the season pitching seven innings giving up five hits and three runs with two of them being earned. He walked two and struck out eight. Robert Carson pitched pitched an inning giving up a hit, Josh Edgin pitched 2/3 of an inning striking out one and Ramon Ramirez retired the only batter that he faced. Lee won his sixth game of the season pitching eight innings. He gave up seven hits and a run with a walk and ten strikeouts. Papelbon saved his 35th game of the season pitching a perfect inning and striking out one.

Ruben Tejada had a hit and drew a walk, Murphy had a hit and an RBI and David Wright had a hit. Lucas Duda had a hit, Andres Torres had a hit and Mike Nickeas had a hit. Kelly Shoppach had a hit, Duda hit a double and the Mets were 1-7 with runners in scoring position and they left seven men on base. Dickey committed an error and Nickeas had a passed ball.

Jimmy Rollins had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk, Utley had two hits and an RBI and Carlos Ruiz had a hit. Domonic Brown had two hits and an RBI, Frandsen drew a walk and Brown hit a triple and hit a homerun. Rollins hit a homerun. The Phillies were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.

Utley hit a sacrifice fly in the first to give the Phillies a 1-0 lead. In the fifth the Phillies took a 2-0 lead on a Rollins solo homerun. The play was reviewed and overturned after it was initially ruled not a homerun. The Mets came back with a run in the bottom of the fifth. Murphy hit an RBI single, Brown hit a solo homerun in the seventh to make it 3-1 and that was the final score.

The two teams will play game two of three on Tuesday night weather permitting. The Mets record fell to 66-81 and the Phillies record improved to 74-74. The Phillies remain in the hunt for the second wild card while the Mets are playing out the string.
