Zach Wheeler Goes 7 in Phillies Win

Wheeler dealer, Zach Wheeler goes 7 in 4-2 Phillies win. Zach Wheeler was on his “A” game with a 7 inning gem. Allowing only 4 hits with 2 walks and 8 strikeouts, Wheeler had the Mets befuddled.

Odubel Herrera kicked things off with a sacrifice fly in the second inning. This would give the Phils a lead they would not surrender. Philadelphia posted three runs in the third inning on an Alec Bohm RBI ground out, a Nick Maton double, and Maton scoring on a throwing error.

You had to know I would mention the bullpen, while they didn’t blow the save, it wasn’t for lack of trying. Jose Alvarado gave up an RBI single to Pete Alonso and Archie Bradley surrendered a homer to Kevin Pillar. Marcus Stroman started for New York and went three innings giving up five hits, three walks, and 2 earned runs while striking out three. Phillie killer, Pete Alonso went three for four with the RBI. Andrew McCutchen was three for five with a run scored for the Phils. Zach Wheeler goes 7 in 4-2 Phillies win.
