The Philadelphia Phillies will enter Shea Stadium Tuesday with only a share of the N.L. East lead.
The New York Mets scored two unearned runs in the top of the tenth Sunday to beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-5. Meanwhile, back in Miami, the Marlins’ Jorge Cantu hit a walkoff single in the 11th to beat the Phils. The two ad up to a Mets-Phillies tie heading into their three-game series beginning Tuesday night in New York.
Mets starter Mike Pelfrey gave up three home runs in his outing. The first of those, an Adam Dunn blast to right to leadoff the second inning, advanced our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,419 games without a New York Mets no hitter.
The Mets left 14 runners on the basepaths during the night, but they took advantage of an Edwin Encarnacion error to pull out a well-needed win.
Bring on the Phils.
