Mets Handle Phillies, 10-6

Max Scherzer was on the mound the New York Mets handle the Phillies. That about gives you an idea of how the game went. For the 24th time that he has started, his team has won. The Mets have won 7 consecutive series which was cemented in this 10-6 victory. Philadelphia scored all their runs via home runs. Scherzer surrendered three while going 6 innings allowing 5 hits (3 on homers), 4 runs with 9 k’s, and a walk with a number that would disturb Joe Girardi, 94 pitches. Zach Eflin continues to struggle. 4 1/3 innings, 8 hits, 5 earned runs a walk, and three strikeouts on 85 pitches.

To the Game

Scherzer was dealing and struck out the first five Phillies he faced. Renowned Mets killer, Kyle Schwarber, blasted his first of the night putting Philly in front 1-0. New York came right back in the bottom half of the second with Starling Marte posting a ground-out RBI. Luis Guillorme doubled home another run making it a 2-1 Mets edge.

Schwarber (3 for 4, 3 RBI) with a knee on the ground, blasted his second, this one a two-run shot making it 3-2 Philadelphia. New York shrugged it off and took charge. Francisco Lindor singled, Jeff McNeil doubled and Eflin walked Pete Alonso. Exit Eflin, enter Jose Alvarado who promptly crossed up JT Realmuto, and a run scored on the passed ball.

Dominic Smith, (4 for 4)playing for his job, hit a two-run single, and just like that, 6-3. Home Run number three came off the bat if Bryce Harper. New York stayed on the accelerator with an Alonso RBI single and a two-run single from Marte to make it 9-4. McNeil got it 10-4 with a run-scoring double on a ball that Schwarber should have caught. To make it look like a closer game, homer number 4 came off the bat of Johan Camargo with a two-run, two-out, 9th inning blast. The Mets handle the Phillies.

“We were able to scratch across some runs and blew the game open so that our pitchers could really go out there and attack the zone. And so, that’s the good part — that’s a good team win, so you just learn from this, you move on, you figure it out and I’ve got to face these guys here next time out. It’s just another fun NL East battle.” Max Scherzer.
