Mets 16 Phillies 7 “Did that just happen?”Wow.
I feel like that is something I have to start off with almost every game recap lately. This team has been a juggernaut as of late and they don’t seem to be stopping. What another offensive onslaught from the boys from Queens. Records were broken, tears were almost shed by a captain, but most important another W was put up in the standings for the Metropolitans.
The Mets combined for eight home-runs on this night with Wright, Wilmer Flores (2 homers), Juan Lagares, Travis d’Arnaud, Michael Cuddyer, Daniel Murphy (with a #1 salute) and Yoenis Cespedes all going yard.
Did anyone else get goosebumps when Wright absolutely jacked that ball into the LF upper deck at Citizen’s Bank?
Jacob deGrom started for the Mets and let up a career-high seven runs in 2 2/2 innings. The bullpen though lead by Sean Gilmarting was spectacular and shut-out the Phillies the rest of the way.
The Phillies did originally own a 7-2 lead in this game before the Mets scored 14 unanswered runs.
The 11 combined home runs between the two teams tied an NL record for most home runs in a game.
The Mets and Phillies are at it again tonight in game two of this four game set when the god of thunder, RHP Noah Syndergaard (7-6, 3.17 ERA) opposes RHP Jerome Williams (4-9, 6.10 ERA) at 7:05 PM EST
