Good morning Mets fans! Tonight, the Amazin’s will look to continue their dominance at Citizens Bank Park against the Philadelphia Phillies. Steven Matz (2-5, 5.77) will take on Aaron Nola (8-7, 3.12) at 7:05 p.m.
Last night was a rollercoaster game which finished well. Seth Lugo gave up three early runs but the Mets began their uphill climb. Michael Conforto homered and Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run home run to key the offense. The Mets bullpen could not hang on to a 6-4 lead, but Amed Rosario homered in the ninth inning to give the Mets the victory. Neil Walker also racked up a few more hits and Dominic Smith got his first big league hit.
