Mets Lose to Phillies With Score 5-4

In Philadelphia, catcher J.T. Realmuto of the Phillies hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning. Rhys Hoskins and Didi Gregorius had run-scoring doubles that led to the Phillies winning against the Mets with a score of 5-4. The rivalry is just getting into shape as the Mets continue to play with the Phillies for 12 more games until the end of May. Phillies manager Joe Girardi said, “I think we understand that our division is very tough and every game means something. but you can’t make too much of three games in April. I mean, they’re really important to us but neither team probably looks the way it’s going to look in a sense in June and July because people aren’t built up.”

The Phillies had a threat right on early into the game. Placing their first two batters in scoring position, the Phillies had bad defense and the Mets were able to take advantage of that. First baseman Pete Alonso drove in a run on a groundout and third baseman Eduardo Escobar drove in a two-out single.

Phillies’ third baseman Alec Bohm was given an ovation by his fans. He made three errors in the first three innings. The first error that Bohm made was when he charged a ball that grazed Ranger Suarez’s glove and eventually flew into the right field. The second error was when Bohm threw the ball into foul territory. Girardi said, “He’s had success off of Walker. And as I said, they’re both going to play. I think it’s important they both play.”

In the ninth inning, Brad Hand was able to punch out Brandon Nimmo. Trevor May had a scoreless seventh inning and faced a minor strain on the triceps.
The next game with the Phillies will be on Friday, April 29th, at 7:10 P.M. EST. Be sure to catch up on the next game at ESPN with this link.
