MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

The Mets were obliterated by the Phillies on Tuesday night 14-3. Steven Matz did not record a single out in the first inning as the Phillies scored ten runs. The Mets offense on the night was fueled by a pair of solo homers off the bat of Wilson Ramos and Michael Conforto. Zack Wheeler will get the call this afternoon in the rubber game of the series.
