Mets Fall 4-2 To Phillies, Split Rain Shortened Series

  • An hour plus long rain delay pushed first pitch back until 2:30pm
  • Jacob deGrom got the start, freshly off the DL and it was a short but memorable one. During a scoreless first inning, deGrom loaded the bases with no one out and battled back to get three outs, all while throwing 45 pitches (originally thought to be “just 43”) in a 26-minute half inning…and no one scored!
  • deGrom was pulled for a pinch hitter in the top of the second, and the pinch hitter Luis Guillorme picked up his first Major League hit.
  • It was announced that deGrom was fine, but due to the high pitch count, his long layoff and the rain delay, it was better to be cautious.
  • Robert Gsellman came on to pitch for the Mets in the second and gave the Mets three shutout innings
  • Paul Sewald was on in the bottom of the fifth.
  • Top 6, Yoenis Cespedes gave the Mets the lead 1-0 with a solo home run off Aaron Nola, the Phillies starter still in the game.
  • Sewald finally ran out of gas in the bottom of the sixth, when Nick Williams, Pinch hitting for starter Aaron Nola, smacked a three run home run into the upper deck and the Phillies had a 3-1 lead.
  • Asdrubal Cabrera got one back with an RBI double in the 7th.
  • AJ Ramos Came on in the 7th and pitched the perfect inning
  • Jeurys Familia came on in the 8th and immediately gave up a solo Home Run to Carlos Santana.
  • The Mets got a man on in the 9th, but with two outs, Cabrera flew out to end the game, and the Mets split rain shortened the series 1-1
  • Mets are off Monday, they will be back at CitiField on Tuesday night for an interleague matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays. First pitch 7:10, Mets on Deck 6:05  (Thumbnail Credit: Getty Images)
