Chan Ho Earns Another Go

If Chan Ho Park was indeed pitching for his spot in the rotation on Wednesday night, he earned another start.

Park pitched six shut out innings and didn't allow the Met's lone hit until the fifth inning. He walked two and struck out five, having the best outing of any Phillies starter this season, by far.

The only problem, Johan Santana was better. In seven innings, Santana allowed two hits and three walks while striking out 10.

The Phillies had a couple of opportunities, but could not get any run support for Park. However, the Mets were having just as much trouble for Santana. They scored the only run of the game on a throwing error by Pedro Feliz and a double clutch by Jayson Werth in the seventh inning.

That is all the Mets needed as Pedro Feliciano and Francisco Rodriguez finished out the 1-0 game.

Despite the loss, the Phillies remain in first place, and Shane Victorino extended his hitting streak to 15 consecutive games.
Jamie Moyer will go for career win number 250 against Mike Pelfrey tonight at Citi Field.

Call of the day: In May of 2006, Xavier Nady of the Mets hit a deep fly ball with two outs and the bases loaded off Gavin Floyd. But Aaron Rowand was there to save the day.
"Driven to deep center field. Rowand back, are you kiddin' me? What a
great, great perhaps GAME SAVING catch, by Aaron Rowand!"
