Meet the Mets
If only the Mets could play the Phillies every night of the season. The Amazins continued their dominance over Philadelphia on Monday night, this time propelled by strong offensive performances by the likes of Michael “6 RBI” Conforto and Jeff McNeil. Zack Wheeler did his job, pitching seven innings, though he wasn’t at his best, and gave up four runs. The Mets had more than enough firepower to defeat the Phillies 9-4 on the evening.
