Mets 4 Phillies 6
WP: Nola (2-0)
LP: Syndergaard (1-1)
S: Neris (1)
Noah Syndergaard looks unhittable in the first, but gets hit hard in the third and fourth leading to a Mets 6-4 loss to Philly.
Although Thor gave up 5 runs tonight, only 3 were earned in his 7 hit, 7 innings pitched performance tonight. With the Mets down 5-1 in the bottom of the fifth, Neil Walker hit a three run bomb to dead center field putting the Mets behind just 1 with 6 innings to go. Sadly, the Mets were unable to mount a strong enough comeback, and fell to the Phillies 6-4. Frightening sight near the end of the game when Yoenis Cespedes left the game due to a left hamstring cramp. which Collins says he is worried about, as the MRI will come out tomorrow. In Jeurys Familia's comeback from his 15 game suspension, he logged a 30 pitch shutout 9th, which is encouraging to see as no more runs were allowed, although he may be rusty.
It's always a shock when the Mets lose to the Phillies, especially with Syndergaard on the mound, but the Mets will bounce back tomorrow night when Jacob deGrom takes the mound for the first time vs our rival Nationals at 7: 10pm ET.
