Title this one: "Friday the 13th: Jason Lives."
Just when Jason Bay seemed deader than the freak in those cheesy horror movies, the Mets left fielder came wielding a machete last night that left Cliff Lee bloodied in the gutter.
Bay's two-run homer against Lee in the first inning, coupled with solid pitching from R.A. Dickey, led the Mets to a 5-2 victory over the Phillies before 45,429 at Citizens Bank Park.
Any victory over the Phillies is big for the Mets. But this one was huge considering it came against Lee, who had a 0.43 ERA in his previous three starts against them, and with David Wright still sidelined by a broken right pinky that may land him on the disabled list.
