After the Mets swept the double-header from the Dodgers, the San Francisco Giants did the Mets a solid by beating the Phillies 6-2 out in San Fran.
With the loss, the Phillies dropped to 2nd place, a 1/2 game behind THE METS!
You read right...the team that at one point was 4-8 is now 12-9 and in first place.
The Mets-Dodgers series ends this afternoon, and after an off day tomorrow, the Mets travel to the City Of Cheesesteaks, to take on the Phillies. Could make for an interesting weekend.
I know it's early, and the NL East division lead can change a dozen times or so between now and the end of the season, but it is fun to see them playing well. Even Nuke LaLoosh (aka David Wright) had a good set of games yesterday.
I along with all Mets fans will enjoy this moment. Hopefully this can be the start of something special.
