Last night, the Mets lost 3-1. The offense remained relatively quiet as Yoenis Cespedes hit a home run in the fourth for one of the Mets three hits. One of the other hits was Amed Rosario‘s first career double. Dominic Smith went 0-for-3 in his second MLB game of his career.
Steven Matz pitched for the Mets last night and started off the game with 4 1/3 no-hit innings before allowing a hit to Maikel Franco. He then proceeded to allow two runs that innings to give the Phillies a 2-1 lead. Terry Collins removed Matz from the game after 5 2/3 innings in which he allowed only the two runs, but was only able to record a single strikeout. Erik Goeddel allowed a run in the eighth as well.
