Meet the Mets
The Mets came from behind yesterday to beat the Phillies 10-6 last night. Seth Lugo started for the Mets and gave up six earned runs in just 1.2 innings pitched. Brandon Nimmo went 3-4 with a triple and a home run, Dom Smith went 3-5 with a double and two runs batted in, and Pete Alonso and Robinson Cano both homered. Edwin Diaz walked two in the ninth, but the Mets held on to defeat the Phillies and keep their playoff hopes alive.
