The New York Mets offensive lineup has been hoping to get that big hit, the ones that would drive in those vital runs that can help win the ballgames. The team had gotten just that in their 5-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in MLB action on Wednesday night.
The scoring for the Mets started early as in the Bottom of the First, as Dominic Smith had an RBI single that plated the first run. The team played small ball and got the second run on an RBI groundout by Pete Alonso, for the early 2-0 lead.
Philadelphia quickly responded thanks to a Jean Segura home in the Top of the Fifth, that cut into the Mets lead. Things got stalemated for a while until the Bottom of the Seventh when Alonso lifted an RBI Sac Fly that made the score 3-1.
In the Bottom of the Eighth New York Increased their lead thanks to a cannon of a homer by James McCann. From there the Mets bullpen stepped up and was able to shut down the Philadelphia offense.
On the mound for New York David Peterson looked great, mixing his pitches, and sitting down 10 batters in six innings of work to improve his overall record to 1-1. Aaron Loup and Edwin Diaz both struck out two batters each to help keep the Phillies off the board.
1495 Sports is proud to bring the following Mets Post-Game Press Conference as Manager Luis Rojas and Pitcher David Peterson shares these thoughts:
The Mets and Phillies conclude their series at Citi Field with a game on Thursday (today) with first pitch scheduled for 12:10 p.m. On the mound for New York will be righty Jacob deGrom, who has been pitching tremendously on the mound. DeGrom will be taking on Philadelphia righty Zach Eflin, who has a 3-4 record with a 5.21 ERA in 11 career games against New York.
