The Mets (5-3) hit seven homers as a team, and starter Matt Harvey (2-0) left the game in the sixth with a tight left hamstring but said he will be ready for his next start Sunday. He didn't like that, and would have to be detoured away from charging the mound by Phils catcher Cameron Rupp.
"Another embarrassing game against the Mets", Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Defending baseball's unwritten rules, he knows it's not a matter of the fact that Ramos threw at Cabrera, but where he threw it. But the clear issue is - and has been for two full seasons now - the lineup's inconsistent production. There should be an update shortly from Citizens Bank Park.
Bruce's solo shot to right in the fourth pulled the Mets to 2-1, giving NY a homer in six straight games.
On bat flips, etc.
A corresponding roster move will be made on Wednesday. I my opinion, that represents an RBI machine and you don't find those type of players on every street corner. "It's inappropriate, especially with a tied game in the eighth inning". And after a conversation in Mackanin's office Tuesday, the manager believed him.
"Nobody in a big-league clubhouse wants to be hurt", he said.
Ramos and Bruce left the objective of the pitch up in the air as Ramos told reporters the pitch that got away from him. "I was seeing the ball well, and I was hitting it". "It was a tie game, so I was just trying to execute my pitches". When youth gets mixed into this delicate recipe, it tends to overheat and teams get burnt. "If you have other questions I'll be happy to answer them". "They're going to MRI him tomorrow". "I tried to get through it but I wasn't doing the team any favors throwing what I was throwing at that point".
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Mets are -150 money line favorites versus the Phillies, who have odds of +130 to pull off the upset.

The ERA's of the four pitchers following tonight's game? "He threw me out for no reason".
In an appearance on SportsNet New York in February, the Republican governor declared that the Philadelphia Phillies "suck", that their fans are bitter and angry and that it's not safe for civilized people to go to their stadium.
He's 39-year-old Joaquin Benoit, and boy is he excited. This home run would prove fatal, as the Phillies couldn't recover in the bottom of the ninth. Cespedes finished the game 4-for-6 with three runs scored and five RBIs. I've been on the DL for an extended period of time, multiple times. "I also can't say it was on goal".
Since putting on a Phillies uniform, Buchholz has not impressed.
Mackanin said Neris, however, is the likely long-run closer's candidate.
Michael Brantley delivered a two-run RBI double in the 10th inning to give the Cleveland Indians a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox in their first home game since last year's dramatic Game 7 of the World Series.
Buchholz was not at his best in the start, allowing six runs on eight hits with one walk in 2 1/3 innings.
