"They scolded me," manager Terry Collins said of the umpires. "I took it like a man, like I always do. It's not the first. It won't be the last. They just saw the replay on the board so they came off the field. They're supposed to stay on the field. They've been out there so much, they wanted to get off."
The successful challenge was Collins' sixth of the season in 10 tries. It came with the Mets leading, 3-0, over the Phillies.
Four innings later, Collins was not so successful. With his team trailing by a run, the Mets manager challenged second-base umpire Doug Eddings' ruling that the Phillies caught Curtis Granderson stealing second base. After a brief review, umpires confirmed the call, dropping Collins to 6-5 in manager challenges.
