K-Rod Proves Human
The Phillies had never scored a run against Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez, but they changed that last night. The Phillies scored three runs against him in the ninth inning in a 6-3 victory at Citi Field. In 16 previous appearances against the Phillies, Rodriguez had allowed eight hits, zero runs, six walks and had struck out 15 in 18 1/3 innings.
He was 10-for-10 in save opportunities.
It was the fourth time this season that the Mets had gone to the ninth inning of a game at Citi Field with the score tied, and New York has lost all four of those games.
