The New York Mets (65-77) defeated the Philadelphia Phillies (74-68) by a score of 6-4 and won the series at Citi Field.
In the first, Oswalt gave up a two-run homer to Rhys Hoskins with two outs. He worked around a bases-loaded jam in the second with two outs in the second with a strikeout of Justin Bour. In the third, he had a relatively easy time retiring the side.
Drew Gagnon pitched two scoreless innings of his own while working around a couple of hits. He’ll probably get some more work soon with Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman likely limited the remainder of the season.
Seth Lugo pitched a 1-2-3 eighth with a couple of strikeouts. Lugo stayed on for the ninth and retired the first two but gave up a homer to Carlos Santana with two outs. He managed to hang on, though, to win the game.
It was a good day for the Mets youngsters all around. Jeff McNeil went 3-for-4 with a walk. Amed Rosario went 1-for-3 with a walk. Michael Conforto went 2-for-5 with a homer. Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-2 with two walks.
The New York Mets will begin a four-game series with the Miami Marlins at Citi Field tomorrow. As of now, Jason Vargas (5-9, 6.75 ERA) is scheduled to start against Marlins right-hander Jeff Brigham (0-1, 9.00 ERA). However, that could change since Jacob deGrom was scratched today. The game will start at 7:10 p.m. and air on SNY.
