Mets Win With 9th-Inning Homer, Soothing Sting of Batting-Order Gaffe

Philadelphia Phillies’ Hector Neris in action during a baseball game against the New York Mets Friday

Mets hitters have slashed.230/.315/.372 on their way to 4.2 runs scored per game this year, including 4.2 runs per game against divisional foes and 2.4 per game over the team's last five contests (1-4 SU).

Off to a strong start this season, deGrom is 3-0 with a 1.83 ERA and 56 strikeouts. NY is now just 2.5 games out of first in their division. He is hitting.360 so far and that leads the league. Right-handers Zach Eflin and Noah Syndergaard will square off. The middle game Saturday was postponed and will be made up August 16.

Philadelphia trailed 1-0 when Williams batted for Nola and connected on a slider with two outs off Sewald (0-3), the second of four Mets relievers.

Arrieta struck out Adrian Gonzalez with two on to end the third, and he was effective in holding the Mets to mostly weak contact while striking out five. The homer was Cespedes' 16th in 40 career games against the Phillies.

Aaron Nola will toe the rubber for the Phillies and he has gone 5-1 with a 2.05 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP in eight starts on the year, including 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP in four starts here at home. And in 20 games at Citizens Bank Park he has 11 home runs.


Jorge Alfaro had three hits for the Phillies. He enters Sunday with a 0.99 WHIP and 11.2 strikeouts per nine innings rate on the season.

Edubray Ramos worked around a walk in the ninth for his first big league save as the Phillies improved to 8-14 against the NL East. Mets fans know what Syndergaard and deGrom are capable of but the offense has to give them support when they do their jobs on the mound. Eflin is 0-2 with a 4.41 ERA against the Mets in his career. The Mets have played well on the road, but the Phillies are 15-6 here at home and the overall better team in this one. "I felt fine, that's what was frustrating". Jacob deGrom has not allowed an ER in his last three starts and he has a solid 2.78 ERA in his career against the Phillies.

NY has lost 17 of 25 after an 11-1 start, dropping nine of its last 11. Their struggles on offense are concerning and it has gotten to a point where the team cannot even bat in the correct order.

Eflin has allowed just one run this season through two starts and 12 2/3 innings since replacing Ben Lively (back) in the rotation.
