I Take Back Everything Bad I've Said About Scott Hairston

The Mets beat up the Phillies this afternoon, winning 11-2.

  • Jon Niese went seven outstanding innings, giving up two runs on six hits, while striking out six and walking one. He did not allow a lead-off base runner through the first six innings.
  • Scott Hairston had one of his best days at the plate as a Met, going 3-5 with a double and a three-run home run. He had a career-high five RBIs.
  • Daniel Murphy continued to produce at the plate. He was 3-5 with two RBIs and a run scored.
  • Even Jason Bay got in on the fun, ending his 0-18 slump, and going 2-4 with a run scored.
  • Ruben Tejada committed two errors in today's game. That is now three errors in the past two games.

Next up: The Mets send Mike Pelfrey to the mound in their series finale against the Phillies Sunday afternoon. Game time is 1:10 p.m.
