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

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

Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom came off the disabled list Sunday and started against the Phillies, but he was pulled from the lineup after just one inning.

DeGrom needed 45 pitches to get three outs, and pinch-hitter Nick Williams had a go-ahead, three-run homer off Paul Seward in the sixth inning that carried the Philadelphia Phillies over the Mets 4-2 Sunday. DeGrom also needed 45 pitches to get out of the first inning.

"He is about as confident a pitcher as I've been around", Kapler said (see video below).

Jeurys Familia (2-1) worked a flawless ninth for the Mets, who had scored two or fewer runs in seven of their previous nine games. I definitely would've liked to go back out there. DeGrom struck out Rhys Hoskins, got Carlos Santana to ground back to the mound and fanned Maikel Franco to end a 10-pitch at-bat.

The Phillies have been a much-improved team this year, but Friday night showed up that they still have some work to do as they took a very tough 3-1 loss to the Mets in that game.

The New York Mets have not been playing well and they entered game one of this series on Friday night having lost eight of their last nine games.

Asdrubal Cabrera barely missed tying the game in the seventh, when his RBI double landed just shy of the right field wall.

Edubray Ramos worked around a walk in the ninth for his first big league save as the Phillies improved to 8-14 against the NL East.

Blevins has struggled this season, but over his past 4 ²/₃ innings, spanning seven appearances, has not allowed a run. 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.

Phillies starter Jake Arrieta allowed five hits over 7 1/3 scoreless innings and they led 1-0 until Neris allowed a one-out single, Conforto's third homer and a homer to Devin Mesoraco on the next pitch.

Callaway was unhappy with how late the Phillies informed the Mets that Saturday's game was going to be delayed. In his career, he has gone 25-16 with a 3.47 ERA in 58 starts on the road and 6-5 with a 3.32 ERA in 21 starts during May, plus 19-8 with a 1.97 ERA in 40 starts in the daytime, while against the Phillies he has gone 6-1 with a 2.78 ERA in 11 starts, including 2-0 with a 3.23 ERA in five starts here at Citizens Bank Park.
