Meet the Mets
The Mets bullpen could not back up a solid start from Steven Matz on Tuesday night. After Matz exited the game with five scoreless innings under his belt, Jerry Blevins and Drew Smith struggled in relief of Matz and gave up all five Phillies runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. The lone two runs the Mets scored came from a Steven Matz solo homer and a Dominic Smith double.
Steven Matz became just the third Mets pitcher ever to homer in back to back starts, joining Tom Seaver and Ron Darling.
