    Phils' Nola Seeking Progress vs. Mets, Syndergaard



    PHILADELPHIA, PA -- The Philadelphia Phillies will turn to their struggling ace Aaron Nola when they open a three-game series Monday night against the visiting New York Mets.

    Nola, who finished third last season in Cy Young voting in the National League, will enter with a 1-0 record and 6.46 ERA.

    The Mets will counter with Noah Syndergaard, who's 1-1 with a 4.74 ERA.

    The Phillies improved to 9-5 after winning two of three on the road against the Miami Marlins. On Sunday, it took 14 innings for Philadelphia to outlast Miami, 3-1, as Jean Segura drilled a two-run home run to left field in the top of the 14th.

    Philadelphia's offense had been scuffling, but it did just enough to pull out win No. 9 on Sunday.

    "I think hitting is one of those things that can be a little bit hit and miss," Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters in Miami. "Sometimes, you have to give credit to the opposition for pitching well. I think that we have the ability to score lots of runs in consecutive games. And I think that's going to happen for us."

    The bullpen, which has struggled mightily at times, stepped up as a whole in the 14-inning marathon. Victor Arano was especially impressive, striking out all six batters he faced in the 12th and 13th. Arano was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    "In Triple-A, that was my main focus, I wanted to work on my slider a lot," Arano told reporters. "I wanted to get it back to where it was last year. It was just a small adjustment I had to make. I wasn't grabbing it hard enough."

    The Mets (9-6) arrived in Atlanta and won the first two games of a four-game series. Then the Mets fell 11-7 on Saturday and 7-3 on Sunday night.

    New York's offense didn't come through on Sunday. Aside from a solo home run by J.D. Davis, the Mets managed little else on their way to a road loss.

    The bullpen continued to have control issues, and its collective ERA ballooned to 6.50.

    Syndergaard will look to get the Mets back on track against the Phillies.

    Through three starts, he has struck out 20 while walking only two. In his last start, a 9-6 win over Minnesota, Syndergaard threw seven innings and gave up seven hits and four runs.

    In 10 career starts vs. Philadelphia, Syndergaard is 5-3 with a 3.23 ERA, but he struggled against the Phillies last season, going 1-2 with a 5.75 ERA in four starts. He also walked 12 batters in those games, compared to just 22 strikeouts.

    Nola is 6-1 in his career against the Mets, posting a 3.35 ERA across nine starts. That includes a sparkling 4-0 record with a 2.15 ERA in six starts last season, as Nola struck out 46 in 37 2/3 innings.

    Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters that third baseman Todd Frazier could join the team during the series against the Phillies. Frazier, who has a strained left oblique, is scheduled to play a minor league game Monday at Class-A St. Lucie.

      • The Mets have won the season series with the Phillies in seven consecutive seasons, tying the longest such streak by either team in this matchup -- The Phillies have had two seven-season streaks, 1974 to 1980 and 1962 to 1968.
      • The Mets split a four-game series with the Braves in Atlanta over the weekend, winning the first two games and dropping the last two. New York has scored 59 runs in 10 road games this season, the most through the first 10 road games of a season since 2007 (67 runs).
      • The Phillies took two of three games from the Marlins in Miami, allowing just one run in each of the wins and 10 runs in the loss. Philadelphia has allowed 37 runs over its last five games after allowing 36 runs in its first nine games this season.
      • Jeff McNeil had seven hits in the four-game series with Atlanta. He has a career batting average of .338 since joining the Mets on July 24, 2018. Only three NL hitters have a better average over that span (Christian Yelich, Mil: .352; Anthony Rendon, Was: .346; Justin Turner, LAD: .340 -- minimum 200 PA).
      • Jean Segura hit a game-winning two-run home run in the 14th inning on Sunday, his first long ball of 2019. Segura is hitting .385 with runners on base this season. He hit .283 with runners on across his two seasons in Seattle.
      • Noah Syndergaard and Aaron Nola will go head-to-head for the fourth time in their careers. Nola has a 2-0 record in the three previous matchups, including a seven-inning start with one earned run and 11 strikeouts when they last met on August 17, 2018.

            Lagares' Heads-up Baserunning Helps Mets Top Phils 7-6 in 11


            by ROB MAADDI

            PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Once he got the ball, Edwin Diaz made sure he finished.

            Juan Lagares scored from second base on Michael Conforto's hard grounder to first in the 11th inning, and Diaz struck out the 3-4-5 batters to preserve the New York Mets' 7-6 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on a blustery Monday night.

            Mets manager Mickey Callaway's decision not to use Diaz with two outs and the bases loaded in the eighth backfired, and the closer warmed up three times before finally entering the game. He fanned Bryce Harper, Rhys Hoskins and J.T. Realmuto to end it.

            "I'm ready anytime they need me," Diaz said. "I came here to win. I'll be ready in any situation."

            Callaway said he prefers to use Diaz for one inning, so that's why Robert Gsellman replaced Jeurys Familia with a two-out jam in the eighth. Gsellman walked Jean Segura on four pitches to force in the tying run, but Harper then swung at the first pitch and popped out.

            Lagares led off the 11th with an infield single against Pat Neshek (0-1), and Brandon Nimmo walked. Two outs later, Conforto hit a sharp grounder that Hoskins couldn't field for an error. The ball trickled to second baseman Cesar Hernandez and Lagares kept running, scoring easily because the throw was way off target.

            "I was ready to score and I knew he didn't catch the ball," Lagares said.

            Luis Avilan (1-0) pitched out of trouble in the 10th, stranding runners on second and third. Diaz got his sixth save in six tries and his 16th in a row dating to last season with Seattle.

            Noah Syndergaard had a rough outing for the Mets, giving up five runs and nine hits in five innings while fanning nine.

            "I'm having a hard time gripping the ball," Syndergaard said. "Not sure what's going on."

            Phillies ace Aaron Nola, who finished third in NL Cy Young Award voting last year, struggled again. He allowed five runs and seven hits in four innings. His ERA rose to 7.45 while Syndergaard's climbed to 5.63.

            "He's just not throwing the ball where he wants it," Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. "I'm concerned he's not where he wants to go. Flip side is he has a long track record of success. He deserves as much confidence as anybody does."

            Nimmo connected off Jose Alvarez in the sixth, driving his third homer to the seats in right to give the Mets a 6-5 lead.

            The Mets jumped on Nola for three runs in the third. Wilson Ramos, who spent the last two months in Philadelphia last season, ripped a two-run single. Jeff McNeil, who later made a pair of outstanding defensive plays at third base, followed with an RBI single.

            The Phillies answered in the bottom half. Harper had an RBI single and Realmuto tied it on a two-run single with two outs.

            After Robinson Cano lined a two-run double in the fourth, the Phillies tied it at 5 in the bottom half when Maikel Franco crushed an 0-2 pitch way out to left for his fifth homer.

            HONORING JACKIE

            Both teams wore No. 42 jerseys to honor Jackie Robinson. Cano, who is named after Robinson, wore Nike cleats featuring images of Robinson sliding into home plate.

            ROSTER MOVE

            The Mets recalled RHP Drew Gagnon from Triple-A Syracuse and optioned INF Luis Guillorme.

            TRAINER'S ROOM

            Mets: 3B Todd Frazier is expected to return soon from a left oblique strain, but Callaway isn't certain when.

            Phillies: RHP David Robertson was placed on the 10-day injured list because of soreness in his right elbow.

            UP NEXT

            LHP Steven Matz (1-0, 1.65 ERA) takes the mound for the Mets, and RHP Nick Pivetta (1-1, 9.45) goes for the Phillies on Tuesday night. Matz is 0-2 with a 3.57 ERA in five career starts vs. Philadelphia. Pivetta is 2-2 with a 6.39 ERA in five career starts vs. New York.
