Meet the Mets

Carlos Carrasco followed up a solid start against the Cubs with another good start against the Phillies. He gave up one run in six innings while striking out four. The Mets continued to play sparkling defense behind their pitchers, this time it was Francisco Lindor who made two great plays in the field to help Carrasco get through six. As for the offense it was all Mark Canha who accounted for all four runs. He hit a two-run blast off Aaron Nola to give the Mets the lead in the third, and then he drove in two more an inning later when he singled with the bases loaded. The Mets have taken the series from Phillies but will look for the sweep with Max Scherzer on the mound.
