Jamie Moyer shut down the Mets only allowing two hits over seven innings and Greg Dobbs hit a three-run homer off Pedro Martinez, helping the Phil cut the NL East margin to one game with a 6-2 victory in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Sunday.
Carlos Delgado hit two long homers and drove in four runs, backing a huge win by Santana as New York beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Sunday night for the doubleheader split.
The NL East leading Mets salvaged the finale of the three-game series, giving them a two-game lead over the second place Phils.
I think we still all remember last September, when the Mets blew a seven-game cushion with 17 to play and lost the division crown to the Phillies. Plenty of time fellas, plenty of time.
