Final Score: Mets 4, Phillies 1 — ZacKKKKKKKKK Wheeler dominates

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Zack Wheeler struck out nine and walked none as the Mets took game one of their marathon five-game series in Philadelphia.

Zack Wheeler made his best start of the season as the Mets beat the Phillies 4-1 to open the five-game series. He struck out nine and walked none in 6.1 innings, allowing just a solo home run to Marlon Byrd in the seventh. It was a truly dominant start. Wheeler retired 14 Phillies in a row at one point.

The Mets' lineup didn't do much but they didn't need to. Chris Young hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning and Curtis Granderson drew a walk with the bases loaded in the fifth inning to pace the offense.

Vic Black impressed in 1.1 innings of relief work. He struck out three and didn't allow a baserunner. Jenrry Mejia was even better; he struck out the side in the ninth inning to clinch victory. Mets pitchers struck out 15 and walked none!
