Young players in spotlight as Phillies host Mets

Young players in spotlight as Phillies host Mets (Aug 11, 2017)

The opener was not kind to either starting pitcher, however, as Philadelphia's Vince Velasquez left the game after the first inning because of numbness in his right middle finger, while New York's Jacob deGrom exited in the seventh with a bruised right triceps after he was hit by a line drive. The homer capped a three-hit night for Rosario, who scored three times. Nick Williams and Tommy Joseph both had RBI singles in the inning.

DeGrom (13-5) gave up four hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings with nine strikeouts and no walks. "I have gained a little bit of weight back, but I am not getting back to where I was a year ago and that was the main goal".

Much like Conforto, who has blossomed into a star this season, the Mets view Smith as somebody who does his best work using the entire field to hit.

The Mets are 5-0 against the Phillies in Citizens Bank Park and have 17 homers in those games while the Phillies have just four.

"It's not affecting my elbow", Velasquez said. Hernandez pulled the Phillies even at 6-6 with a solo shot off of Jerry Blevins in the eighth inning. On the other side, the Phillies have lost 11 of Pivetta's last 16 starts, are 2-10 in his last 12 outings following a team loss in their previous game, and are 3-7 in his last 10 starts after allowing five runs or more in their previous game.

NY is 1-6 in Matz's last 7 starts and 8-1 in their last 9 road games against a team with a losing home record while the under is 6-1 in Matz's last 7 division starts.

Freddy Galvis and Odubel Herrera followed with back-to-back singles. Hoskins, who batted cleanup, is 0 for 6 since being promoted to the big leagues from the triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs on Thursday. This was the first time the Phillies had played at home since Daulton died on Sunday of brain cancer. Despite sporting a 4-2 road record, the 27-year-old Centenary product has been much less effective at home (3.51 ERA, .229 batting average against) than outside of NY (5.26, .309). Daulton's No. 10 was written in the dirt behind the catcher's box.

Rosario's first career homer proved to be a game victor as it broke a 6-all tie in the ninth.

"From where we stand right now, I don't know", Velasquez said.

"My goal was to play in big leagues since I was 7 years old", Smith said before the game.

Mets: New York recalled OF Juan Lagares from Double-A Binghamton prior to the game. "With ... Bruce going to Cleveland, it's not a direct replacement".

"We just can't see to outdo them", Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Altherr (strained right hamstring) went on the DL on Saturday.

After making his debut from the seven-hole in yesterday's game, Hoskins will move up three spots to take on Mets' starter Seth Lugo. Lugo has allowed multiple home runs in three straight starts.
