On Friday the Mets send out Oliver Perez in need of a big win here. this game was not good for the Mets. Perez was only able to go 3.2 innings giving up 6 earned runs. the only good news out of this game was that the bullpen was lights out giving up only 1 earn run. with this lost the Mets lost their first place lead to the Phillies. they had this lead since may 15. with 2 games to go the Mets have to play like they started the season to take the National league East.
