The Parallel Universe Fake Mets: Games 23-25

pufm_023.pngGame 23: Mets 2, Phillies 0
The Fake Mets managed 2 runs in the top of the third when Fake Carlos Beltran hit a bases-loaded, two-out single off of Fake Cole Hamels. They wouldn’t get another baserunner until the ninth, but that was all they needed. Fake Oliver Perez pitched eight brilliant innings, and Frankie Rodriguez worked around a two-out single from Fake Chase Utley in the bottom of the ninth to preserve the win.

In real life: The Mets scored early and often against Phillies’ starter Kyle Kendrick, while Jon Niese turned in 7 great innings, as they cruised to a 9-1 win, their eighth in a row.

Game 24: Phillies 3, Mets 1
Fake John Maine gave up homers to Fake Shane Victorino and Fake Raul Ibanez, while his teammates could only scratch out one run against Fake Joe Blanton.

In real life: After a great April, Mike Pelfrey came back to earth, undone by some sloppy defense and a six-run fourth inning. Roy Halladay was in control the entire game and went the distance in the 10-0 loss.

Game 25: Mets 1, Phillies 0
The Fake Mets could only manage one measly run against Fake J.A. Happ, that was all they would need. Fake Jon Niese and three relievers combined for a shutout to take the rubber match of the series.

In real life: This game never happened. Move along, nothing to see here.
