Forgettable night for Polanco

Our Phillies blog, The Good Phight, highlighted the truly awful night from Placido Polanco.

Placido Polanco was arguably responsible for the first three Mets runs, failing to handle a Jose Reyes infield single in the first that led to a 1-0 Mets lead after Jason Bay’s RBI double, then botching a double-play ball in the bottom of the seventh that would have ended the inning, a batter before Reyes hit a broken-bat double to left that plated two more and ended Cole Hamels’ night. Polanco also hit into the first of the three double plays to kill a first-and-third, one out threat in the third, and struck out with a runner on to end the eighth.

Polanco finished 0-3 on the night with an error.
