This was one of those games that’s not worthy of sentences and paragraphs. Here are bullet points:
- Mets lose 11-5 to Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
- Santana loses no-hitter on first-inning solo homer by Placido Polanco, driving up count to 7,669 New York Mets games without a no-hitter
- Line on Santana: 3 2/3 innings, 10 runs on eight hits (four of them homers) and two walks, just a token strikeout
- Few highlights: David Wright’s 1st inning three-run homer; Rod Barajas goes 2-for-3 with two run shot in fourth
