The Legend of Dan Murphy

Rookie Dan Murphy continued his legendary playing streak, coming in today and cracking a pinch-hit 2-run homer to extend the Mets lead. Beltran and Delgado homered as well, and the Mets built up an 8-4 lead with a couple of innings to go. As I may have mentioned, the shakey Mets bullpen needs about a 4 run cushion to have a chance to hold the lead. Joe Smith and Duaner Sanchez gave a couple of runs back, but Pedro Feliciano and Aaron Heilman were effective.

The Phils won, so the Mets are still a game out of first.
