NEW YORK (AP) With a chance to climb out of last place, Grady Sizemore and the Phillies did all they could to stay there.
The left fielder dropped an easy pop fly that allowed the tiebreaking runs to score Friday night, and Philadelphia mustered little offense against Jacob deGrom in a 4-1 loss to the New York Mets.
"Routine play, had it the whole way, saw it fine, was under it, just missed it," Sizemore said. "It does not get much worse than that. The guys played hard - I just happen to be the guy who let the team down. Really all there is to it."
