Game 153: Mets @ Phillies

By Adam Rubin

9:16 p.m.: Second chance, but the Mets can't take advantage. Jesus Feliciano strikes out. Phillies 3, Mets 2.

9:15 p.m.: Jesus Feliciano looked like he ended the game with a comebacker to Brad Lidge, but apparently time had been called for Luis Castillo to pinch run for Josh Thole. Charlie Manuel giving first base ump Jerry Layne an earful.

9:13 p.m.: Brad Lidge walks Josh Thole. Runners on the corners with two out in the ninth. Mets trailing by a run and Joaquin Arias due up. Jesus Feliciano pinch hits for Arias.

9:11 p.m.: Angel Pagan's flyout advances Ike Davis to third base against Brad Lidge with two out.

9:09 p.m.: Ike Davis doubles with one out in the ninth.

8:01 p.m.: Carlos Ruiz sneaks a single inside the first-base bag that scores Raul Ibanez and gives the Phillies a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the fourth.

7:54 p.m.: David Wright strikes out in the fourth inning. He now has 154 strikeouts this season, within two of matching the franchise record by Dave Kingman (1982) and Tommie Agee (1970). However, Ike Davis follows with a two-out single and Angel Pagan homers. It's 2-2, middle fourth.

7:36 p.m.: Shane Victorino's RBI double in the second inning stakes Philadelphia to a 2-0 lead.

7:15 p.m.: Two pitches into the bottom of the first, Shane Victorino produces his first career leadoff homer. Victorino takes R.A. Dickey out to left field. Phillies 1, Mets 0.

7:07 p.m.: Lucas Duda grounds out to first base as the No. 2 hitter in the first inning. Jerry Manuel placed Duda second so that he could use Angel Pagan lower in the order to separate left-handed hiting Ike Davis and Josh Thole. It is Duda's third time batting No. 2 as a Met. He could not recall another instance since his youth batting in that slot.
