Takeaways from tonight’s game

Frustration is definitely the first feeling I had once the Phillies put up their fifth run of the game. Frustration is a familiar feeling, but not when it comes to the Mets pitching staff, this is new for me. However, a win is a win and even more so within the division.

  • McNeil, multi-hit game, duh! I suspect that he’ll have close to 700 hits this season. He also drove in a run, now giving him 10 on his 3-5 night.
  • Amed Rosario had a multi-hit game of his own,
  • Wilson Ramos keeps hitting the ball and he’s hitting the ball hard. Whether if they’re finding gaps or finding gloves, he’s hitting the ball hard. Ramos went 1-5 with two RBI’s (ninth and tenth of the year) and a run scored.
  • Robinson Cano laced a two-run double to right center, he also showed his normal discipline by taking a walk.
  • Brandon Nimmo continues to hit after his rough start. He stroked a solo home run off of LHP Jose Alvarez, his third of the season. Nimmo went 1-3 with three walks on top of that.
  • Seth Lugo pitched two scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 5.06 and struck out two.
  • Robert Gsellman came into the game with the bases loaded, two outs, and the Mets up 6-5. A very high stress situation, Gsellman walked in the tying run on four pitches, however went on to pitch 1.1 innings lowering his ERA to 3.48.
  • Luis Avilan got himself into and out of trouble in the bottom of the tenth, he went a scoreless inning and struck out Jean Segura with two outs.
  • Michael Conforto would go ahead a drive in the go ahead run in the top of the 11th with two outs.
  • Edwin Diaz came into close the game and get his sixth save of the year by striking out the side, Bryce Harper included.
