Conforto's 2-run blast propels Mets over Phils, 3-1

Philadelphia Phillies’ Odubel Herrera left reacts after hitting a home run off New York Mets starting pitcher Steven Matz during the first inning of a baseball game Friday

New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom came off the disabled list and started against the Philadelphia Phillies but he was pulled from the line-up after just one inning. DeGrom needed 45 pitches to get through the first, which included 20 foul balls by Philadelphia.

DeGrom was great on the mound this season prior to the injury. Its starters have an ERA of 3.72, a WHIP of 1.19 and a strikeouts-per-nine of 8.7.

"I was surprised when the sun came up", manager Mickey Callaway said before the game.

Mets hitters have slashed.230/.315/.372 on their way to 4.2 runs scored per game this year, including 4.2 runs per game against divisional foes and 2.4 per game over the team's last five contests (1-4 SU). The Phils had a 1-0 lead in the game in the first inning and that lead held up until closer Hector Neris entered the game in the 9th inning to try an save it, but he allowed a couple of homers and Phils ended up on the short end of a very tough loss. "I definitely would have liked to go back out there". DeGrom struck out Rhys Hoskins, got Carlos Santana to ground back to the mound and fanned Maikel Franco to end a 10-pitch at-bat.

The pitches were deGrom's most in a big league inning, topping his 37 at a rookie in the first inning at Atlanta on July 2, 2014.

NY has posted 19.5 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 contests and 16.0 over its last five.

The Mets are 3-0 against the Phillies this season, and NY has been dominant in Philadelphia over the last handful of years. Philadelphia's Aaron Nola worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam.

Asdrubal Cabrera barely missed tying the game in the seventh, when his RBI double landed just shy of the right field wall.

The Phillies fell to 7-14 against NL East opponents.

The Mets and Phillies have had some good battles over the years and some high scoring games and we note that the Over is 6-1 in Philadelphia last seven home games vs. a right-handed starter, but we also note that the Under is 8-3 in New York's last 11 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. Luis Guillormepinch hit for deGrom in the top of the second.

It seems that the Phillies and Mets have traded places since they last Met.

For Saturday's matchup, the Mets will be going with RHP Noah Syndergaard. The Mets optioned left-hander Buddy Baumann to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear a roster spot for deGrom. In 40 games against the Phillies, Cespedes has 16 homers.
