Mets Massacre Is Finally Over: Mets 11 Phillies 2

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

After five games and 57 innings of torturous baseball, the Phillies-Mets Citizens Bank Park horror show is finally over. And it did not go well.

In the end, it wasn't even a fair fight.

The Mets finished off a crushing, dispiriting, joyless five-game series against the Phillies on Monday night by beating up on the beleaguered Phils 11-2.

A little over a week ago, the Phillies came home to Citizens Bank Park looking to do some damage during an 11-game homestand. Instead, they leave for Washington, DC having gone 4-7 on that homestand, including losing four out of five to a New York team that, quite frankly, is pretty terrible in their own right.

After back-to-back 14 inning affairs and an 11-inning game on Sunday, the Mets made sure there would be no bonus baseball in the series finale. They jumped out to a 5-0 lead, thanks to an RBI double by Lucas Duda in the 2nd, a two-run double by David Wright in the 6th and Wilmer Flores double in the 6th. All those runs were scored off Phils starter Roberto Hernandez, who lasted 5.1 innings.

The Phils got it to within 5-2, thanks to an RBI groundout by Ryan Howard and a wild pitch by Jeurys Famila that scored Ben Revere.

Then, the Mets decided enough was enough. They scored six runs in the 9th, the last four on a grand slam by Flores, served up by Phillippe Aumont, who is sporting a nifty 21.60 ERA since being called up on Saturday and was once traded for Cliff Lee.

Now, here are some sad tweets.

So where do we go from here, other than Washington, DC for a series against the Nationals?

The Phils are now 6.5 games out of first (it's a miracle they're still that close) and a full three games behind New York in last place in the NL East. They are 12-19 at home and their run differential of -41 is now third-worst in all of baseball, better only than Houston (-45) and Arizona (-65).

There are no words.
