Update from Kevin down at Shea:
Although I predicted it in an earlier post, I don’t think the Mets have any late comeback magic tonight for the Phillies.
Reyes, Lo Duca and Beltran just went in order in the eighth against Philadelphia reliever Antonio Alfonseca. And if you can’t get anything off him, it’s really not your night.
The Mets trail 5-2 entering the ninth. Since I’m on deadline, I won’t update until after I come back up from the locker room after the game Ã¢â‚¬â€ unless something drastically changes, of course.
