Mark Bomback threw his lone career shutout against the Phillies this day.
Mark Bomback threw his lone career shutout against the Phillies this day.

Slumbering bats wasted a good effort by hard-luck pitcher Randy Lerch. You probably can't find too many pitchers who go 4-14 for a team that wins 92 games and a world championship. The Phils managed only two hits against Mark Bomback, who would win 10 games that season for the last-place Mets.

 

Phils' Record: 6-9

Place: 4th Place, 4½ games behind Pittsburgh.

Boxscore: Mets 2, Phillies 0
