Mets Win With 9th-Inning Homer, Soothing Sting of Batting-Order Gaffe

A Series Matter’ Mets look for starting pitchers to step up in Philly

The New York Mets are paying a visit to Philadelphia to square off against their NL East rival Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Secondly, he threw 45 pitches - the most he's thrown in an inning.

The pitches were deGrom's most in a big league inning, topping his 37 at a rookie in the first inning at Atlanta on July 2, 2014. The first inning took a long time and there was a rain delay before the game. The first pitch Sunday was delayed 59 minutes by rain. "The reasoning I understand, but who wants to pitch one inning as a starter", he told reporters.

The immediate concern was deGrom's exit being tied to the hyperextended right elbow injury that landed him on the disabled list earlier this month. DeGrom also carries an 18 1/3 scoreless inning streak into the start as he last surrendered a run April 16 against the Washington Nationals. The right-hander is winless through three career starts against the Mets, allowing eight earned runs through 16 1/3 innings. Philadelphia's Aaron Nola (6-1) worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam by striking out Wilmer Flores and retiring Michael Conforto on a groundout. Asdrubal Cabrera hit an RBI double in the seventh against Tommy Hunter.

Hector Neris appears to be in a rut.

Despite the recent troubles, manager Gabe Kapler remains optimistic that Neris can still succeed as a closer, despite the fact is ERA has ballooned to 5.15. NY is also 1-5 in Syndergaard's last six Saturday starts and 7-2 in his last nine starts in game two of a series.

Luis Guillorme pinch hit for deGrom in the second and singled in his first major league at-bat. Mike Schmidt holds the record (56 in 1981-82).

For Saturday's matchup, the Mets will be going with RHP Noah Syndergaard. NY has an over/under record of 17-17-1.

NY optioned LHP Buddy Baumann to Triple-A Las Vegas to open a roster spot for deGrom. The middle game Saturday was postponed and will be made up August 16.

Mets hitters have slashed.230/.315/.372 on their way to 4.2 runs scored per game this year, including 4.2 runs per game against divisional foes and 2.4 per game over the team's last five contests (1-4 SU).
