A pitching duel was won by the Mets over the Phillies at Citi Field Friday night, 2-1 was the final score.
Jacob deGrom was phenomenal as he pitched seven innings, allowing just three hits and one run while striking out twelve. deGrom had a no hitter going until the 5th inning when Curtis Granderson could not find a fly ball to center field in the sky and it was scored a triple for Andrew Knapp. Former Met Ty Kelly drove Knapp home and that was the only run Philadelphia would be able to score.
Offensively, the Mets were able to plate runs in both the 2nd and 4th innings. Curtis Granderson hit an infield single to score T.J. Rivera and Travis d'Arnaud singled in the 4th to score Jose Reyes. That would be all the offense New York would need as Jerry Blevins, Paul Sewald and Addison Reed combined for two innings of scoreless relief to seal the deal. Reed earned his 13th save of the season.
