Lackluster Mets Loss
There’s no other way to put it. This was an ugly game from top to bottom from the Mets. Noah Syndergaard allowed three earned and was chased after four innings but what has been a pretty poor Phillies offense. That’s what happens when you uncharacteristically allow two homers in a game (Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera).
The Mets offense only mustered three hits off of Zach Eflin and two of those were infield singles by Amed Rosario. Overall, the Mets would only muster six hits in the 4-0 shutout with Rosario getting three of those hits.
Overall, this just looked like two teams whose seasons were soon coming to an end playing like it was a getaway day. Fortunately, with how well the Mets have played in the second half games like these have been few and far between.
Game Notes: Brandon Nimmo has drawn at least one walk in seven consecutive games.
