Morning Briefing: Mets Snap One Game Winning Streak

Tonight, the Mets will wrap up their series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Matt Harvey was scheduled to start but was pushed back due to weather. The starter is TBA but they will face Nick Pivetta.

Yesterday, Jacob deGrom could not find his command and gave up lots of hits. The offense did not manage much success off the Phillies pitching staff. That ultimately led to a huge win in favor of the Phillies. Mets relievers Jamie Callahan and Jacob Rhame looked good in the game.
