Mets Morning News: Phillies shut out Mets, Harvey starts rubber game

Your Sunday morning dose of Mets and Major League Baseball news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

The Mets lost to the Phillies 1-0 last night, as Bartolo Colon and the Mets' bullpen were very good. Unfortunately, Vincent Velasquez and the Phillies' bullpen were just a bit better. That leaves the Mets at 2-2 on the season heading into the rubber game of the series this afternoon at Citi Field with Matt Harvey on the mound.

During the game last night, some Mets fans booed outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. Sigh.

David Wright got the night off last night, but there was a chance that he would enter the game as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. Whether or not that'll be the case when he gets off days going forward will be determined on a game-by-game basis.

Around the National League East

The Nationals and Marlins were rained out, leaving forty percent of the division dormant last night.

The Braves would have probably preferred a rainout to the game they lost to the Cardinals.

Around Major League Baseball

Madison Bumgarner hit another home run off Clayton Kershaw.
