It is either feast or famine for the Mets offense. Tuesday it was famine time as Cole Hamels shut down the Mets bats as the Phillies shut out the Mets.
Jimmy Rollins hit a solo home run in the third and Grady Sizemore connected with one high off the foul pole in right in the fourth as the Phillies took a 2-0 lead.
The Phillies loaded the bases with two outs in the seventh, which spelled the end for Dillon Gee. Josh Edgin came on and Chase Utley hit a grand slam into the upper deck in right to give the Phillies a 6-0 lead.
So Gee went 6.2 innings, allowing five runs on five hits. He struck out two and walked three.
Meantime Hamels was simply spectacular, mowing down the Mets with ease. He went eight innings, scattering six hits while striking out eight and not walking a batter.
Phillies win 6-0.
