Jamie Moyer pitched 6 innings and allowed 3 earned runs, all Carlos Beltran RBI. Matt Stairs tied the game in the 7th to give the Phillies a chance.

bunt base hit! Victorino scores and this game is tied 2-2. Nothing the
Mets can do about that! A swinging bunt hit for Aaron Rowand and the
Phillies have tied it."
