At the start of today's slate of games, the average National League team had allowed 47 unearned runs over the course of the season. The Phillies, on the other hand, had allowed just 19. That number changed significantly today, when the Mets took advantage of a muffed double play ball in the first inning, scoring four unearned runs en route to a 7-4 victory at Citizens Bank Park. The pivotal play came in the first inning, when Michael Martinez bobbled a ground ball by Ruben Tejeda, then was unable to make the throw to second in time for the force out. After a David Wright single loaded the bases, the Mets proceeded to score four runs: one on a groundout by Lucas Duda, and three more on a home run by Nick Evans.

THE METS were reeling when they arrived in Atlanta. They left with renewed confidence. "We still show fight," pitcher Dillon Gee said after yesterday's 7-5 win over the Braves. "We care. It just shows that we pull together and try to pull through the rough patches. " Ruben Tejada had four RBI, Lucas Duda homered off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning and New York Mets slowed Atlanta's wild-card bid with a walk-filled victory. Tejada put the Mets ahead with a three-run double in a four-run fourth.

In case you missed it while mowing your lawn or washing the car, Saturday was National Beer Day. And in a perfect relationship no marketing exec could have invented, it was the first full weekend of baseball. As best-selling author Peter Richmond once noted: "Beer needs baseball, and baseball needs beer - it has always been thus. "   Age is just a number Former Phillie fave Jamie Moyer gave up the 512th home run of his career, the most all time. The slugger was Jordan Schafer, who had not been born when the Souderton native, 49, made his MLB debut in June 1986.

FOR A TEAM that appeared "drained" to manager Terry Collins, the New York Mets look surprisingly spry. Lucas Duda and Jason Bay each drove in three runs with bases-loaded doubles and the visiting Mets held off the reeling Reds for a 10-9 victory yesterday that gave New York its first-ever four-game sweep in Cincinnati - the last two after slugger Carlos Beltran was traded to San Francisco. "The last two games speaks volumes about these guys," said Collins, who watched his team weather weeks of speculation about Beltran.

CHRIS CAPUANO pitched the game of his life, tossing a two-hitter and striking out a career-high 13 as the New York Mets beat the visiting Atlanta Braves, 6-0, last night, in their final matchup before taking a break because of Hurricane Irene. New flood gates were put in place outside Citi Field as a precaution, but Major League Baseball took no chances. The Braves-Mets games today and tomorrow were postponed, to be made up as a doubleheader on Sept. 8. The shutdown comes right after the Mets, at last, won the opener of a homestand.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez didn't even see the balk that gave Atlanta its latest extra-innings win. Everyone else did. With a runner on third and two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, Mets reliever D.J. Carrasco stopped and then restarted his motion with Jason Heyward at the plate, bringing home the winning run to give the host Braves a 9-8 win last night. "The next thing I know Heyward's hands are in the air without a bat," Gonzalez said. "I said, 'What's going on?

New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda will miss the entire 2012 season because of a right shoulder anterior labral tear, the team announced Wednesday. He will have surgery May 1. It is yet another setback for the 23-year-old righthander the Yankees acquired from Seattle in exchange for blue-chip hitting prospect Jesus Montero. As a rookie last season, Pineda went 9-10 with a 3.74 ERA, recording 173 strikes in 171 innings and was named to the all-star team. Pineda, after arriving for spring training 20 pounds overweight, started the regular season on the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis.

NEW YORK - Carlos Ruiz couldn't catch, but hitting clearly wasn't a problem Wednesday night. Out of the starting lineup for the third consecutive game with a strained right hamstring, Ruiz drilled a pinch-hit two-run home run that tied the score in the seventh inning. The Phillies got the lead in the next inning on their way to beating the New York Mets, 10-6, at Citi Field. They won two of three in New York and will take Thursday off before hosting the Miami Marlins in a weekend series.

ATLANTA - You may have read this before. When Ryan Howard is hitting for power, the Phillies have a competent offense. When he isn't, they don't. So when you search for the secret to the 21 runs the Phillies scored in their sweep over the Braves, look no further than the big man in the middle. On Monday and Tuesday, he hit home runs. Yesterday, in a 10-5 win, he went 3-for-5 with a double, a walk, and two RBI. It looked like he was seeing the ball real well. He made the Atlanta pitchers throw strikes.

NEW YORK - Four and a half years ago, the Phillies had a team chock-full of highly paid veterans but an organization lacking in near major league-ready talent on the farm. So coming off back-to-back World Series appearances, Ruben Amaro Jr., who had worked out a deal to bring Roy Halladay to Philadelphia, traded Cliff Lee to the Seattle Mariners for a package of three minor league prospects. Yesterday, nearly a half-decade later, the lessons from that trade, an unmitigated disaster, were briefly on display at Citi Field, where the Phillies were on the wrong end of a 11-2 drubbing at the hands of the New York Mets on the eve of Major League Baseball's trade deadline.

NEW YORK - The Phillies waited Wednesday for the pitching market to settle. Boston dangled Jon Lester while Tampa Bay wavered on David Price's availability. Two consolation prizes - Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett - shuffled through the visitors' clubhouse at Citi Field and accompanied the Phillies to Washington for Thursday's deadline day. St. Louis, a team in desperate need of starting pitchers, acquired Cleveland's Justin Masterson. Before that, the Cardinals emerged as a suitor for Burnett - or even Lee. They could still add another starter, although the chances were slimmer.

LUCAS DUDA swung, Phillippe Aumont turned, and centerfielder Ben Revere positioned himself for a carom that would not occur. And so it ended. Until tomorrow. A series that looked interminable even before it began - five games between two teams jockeying for last place in the NL East - has turned into a life-sucking abyss of bad baseball whose casualty count now stands at 48 innings. Yesterday's affair lasted 11 innings, the pivotal blow coming on Duda's two-run home run off Aumont, the Mets finishing with a 4-3 win. Including back-to-back 14-inning contests on Friday and Saturday, the Phillies and Mets have played more than 17 hours of baseball this series.

HOW SHORTHANDED were the Phillies after back-to-back, 14-inning games? Manager Ryne Sandberg said after yesterday's 4-3 loss to the Mets in 11 innings that he was staying away from four of the eight relievers in his bullpen due to their recent workload. Jake Diekman threw 30 pitches on Wednesday, 12 on Friday and 21 on Saturday. Antonio Bastardo had thrown in four straight games, logging a total of 67 pitches between Wednesday and Saturday. Mario Hollands had thrown in three straight games.

FOR ATLANTA manager Fredi Gonzalez, there's a lot to like about filling out the lineup card in American League ballparks. Brian McCann hit two home runs, including a solo shot in the 10th inning that lifted the Braves over the Toronto Blue Jays, 7-6, on Tuesday. Freddie Freeman had three hits in the cleanup spot, rookie catcher Evan Gattis homered in the fifth spot and McCann, who started at designated hitter, went deep twice batting in the sixth spot. "That's a pretty big three right there," Gonzalez said.

TYLER CLOYD'S phone rang shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, a day after he was named the Most Valuable Pitcher in the International League for the 2012 season. It was Hall of Famer and Triple A Lehigh Valley manager Ryne Sandberg. He called the 25-year-old Cloyd to deliver him the best news he's heard in what's been an unforgettable summer: Cloyd had been summoned to the big leagues to pitch in place of Cole Hamels, who called out sick. While making the hour-long drive to his first major league game, Cloyd called his parents in Nebraska.

GIANCARLO STANTON appears to have no problem with the dimensions of Dodger Stadium, which isn't exactly a home-run haven. The power-hitting rightfielder made Chavez Ravine his personal launching pad this weekend, homering for the third straight game Sunday as the Miami Marlins beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 6-2. Stanton drove a first-pitch fastball from Aaron Harang (9-8) over the centerfield wall in the fourth inning for his 29th homer, tying it at 1. It was his eighth homer during the Marlins' 5-6 road trip.
