  • The Phillies have a record of 12-10 as of the morning of May 2nd, 2009. They are in 2nd place in the N.L. East, 1 game behind the Florida Marlins.
  • The Phillies swept the Marlins in Florida last weekend and took 2 of 3 from the Nationals before dropping the opening game of their series with the Mets Friday night. Last night the Phillies beat the Mets on a walkoff walk in the 10th.
  • The scheduled starters for today's game were Joe Blanton for the Phillies and John Maine for the Mets. Blanton is 0-2 with a 8.41(!) ERA while Maine has gone 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA. However, the final game of the series has been postponed due to rain.
  • Jamie Moyer, yesterday's starter, is tied for the team lead in wins with reliever Clay Condrey at 3.
