WATCH: Fed up Mets fan leaves Phillies game in disgust after 8th inning collapse on Sunday
After witnessing what happened on Sunday between the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, it should come as no surprise that Mets fans are completely fed up with the current state of their baseball team.
Heading into last night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Mets had lost 15 of 20 games and fell seven games under .500 after losing 2-of-3 to the Phillies over the weekend.
Note: The Mets lost 2-1 to the Brewers last night. (lol)
It’s been an absolute disaster for the New York Mets, the team with the highest payroll in Major League Baseball.
As a Phillies fan, it certainly has been fun watching the Mets do what they typically do every baseball season and absolutely embarrass themselves and their entire fan base.
Sunday was really icing on the cake, with the Phillies scoring four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning while only managing to get one hit in the frame.
Entering the inning down three runs, the Phillies managed to take the lead thanks to a throwing error, a walk, and two hit batters. They scored four runs while only managing to get one hit in the inning.
Mets vs Phillies: The Beautiful Collapse
- Alec Bohm reaches on fielders choice, Bryce Harper scores.
- Brandon Marsh walks, JT Realmuto scores.
- Kyle Schwarber hit by pitch, Bryson Stott scores.
- Trea Turner hit by pitch, Alec Bohm scores.
Mets fans, were rightfully pissed and nothing really captured that feeling more than the fan behind home plate who got up and left Citizens Bank Park after Trea Turner was hit by a pitch, which scored Alec Bohm and gave the Phillies the lead.

Mets fans pain, my pleasure.
As for the Phillies, they will open up a three game series against the Chicago Cubs tonight at Wrigley Field.
In the standings, the Braves just keep winning. Atlanta is now 9-1 over their last 10 games and hold a 10.5 game lead over the Phillies in third place in the NL East. The Miami Marlins keep winning too, going 7-3 over their last 10 and maintaining a four game lead over Philly.
All the Phillies can do is continue to win ball games. Three games on the road against the Cubs before returning home to host the Washington Nationals this weekend.
