    McNeil, Mets Look to Keep Rolling vs. Phillies



    PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Hot-hitting Jeff McNeil will lead the Mets into the second game of a three-game series against the host Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.

    McNeil had three hits in the opener, and the Mets pulled out a 7-6 victory when Philadelphia first baseman Rhys Hoskins' two-out error in the top of the 11th inning allowed the winning run to score. Michael Conforto's grounder bounced off Hoskins' glove, and Juan Lagares came home from second base.

    McNeil extended his hitting streak to six games, five of them multi-hit games, and he is 12-for-26 (.462) in that span. His .404 average ranks third in the National League.

    "We've definitely got to beat the Phillies," McNeil told reporters following Monday's game. "They're a good team. We're a great team. Just to get the wins against those division rivals are huge."

    The Mets' starting pitcher Tuesday will be left-hander Steven Matz, who is 1-0 with a 1.65 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings this year. In each of Matz's three starts, he has lasted at least five innings while allowing two earned runs or fewer.

    Matz is still looking for his first career win over the Phillies, having gone 0-2 with a 3.57 ERA in five starts vs. Philadelphia. Bryce Harper was just 2-for-17 (.235) from his Washington Nationals days against Matz. Hoskins has only one hit vs. Matz in 10 at-bats, but it was a homer.

    The Mets' bullpen, which has struggled at times this season, allowed only one run in six effective innings Monday. Noah Syndergaard gave up five runs in five innings before five relievers combined to perform at a high level. Luis Avilan (1-0) earned the win, and Edwin Diaz picked up his sixth save with a scoreless 11th.

    "Guys are picking each other up, and that leads to wins," Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters. "That's what this team is all about, and they're doing a heck of a job."

    The Phillies, following a 3-1 win in 14 innings against the host Miami Marlins on Sunday, came back and played another 11 innings at home Monday.

    After Phillies ace Aaron Nola struggled once again on Monday, giving up seven hits and five runs in four innings, Philadelphia will hand the ball to another scuffling starter, Nick Pivetta.

    Pivetta, who is 1-1 with a 9.45 ERA through three starts in 2019, gave up seven runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings in his most recent start, Wednesday against the Washington Nationals.

    "It wasn't there today," Pivetta said after the 15-1 loss, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "You're going to have ups and downs in this game. This game's going to beat you up. You just have to bounce back. I have another start in five days. I'm going to go in there and do a lot better than I did today."

    Phillies manager Gabe Kapler added after that game about Pivetta's future. "In order for us to meet expectations, we need better performances."

    Pivetta holds a career 2-2 mark and 6.39 ERA in five career starts against the Mets. New York's Amed Rosario is 4-for-7 with two RBIs lifetime against Pivetta while Brandon Nimmo is 0-for-6.

          Kingery, Realmuto Pace Phillies in 14-3 Win Over Mets


          by ROB MAADDI

          PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Scott Kingery is earning more playing time with every hit.

          Kingery and J.T. Realmuto each had three hits and five RBIs, helping the Philadelphia Phillies cruise to a 14-3 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night.

          Kingery and Maikel Franco hit three-run homers and Realmuto had a pair of two-run doubles in a 10-run first inning. Realmuto also went deep for the Phillies in the fourth.

          "I'm feeling good right now and I want to do whatever I can to help the team when I'm in the lineup," said Kingery, who is batting .524 (11 for 21) in limited opportunities.

          Kingery started the game at third base and moved to shortstop after Jean Segura was injured. Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said it's getting more difficult to keep his super sub out of the starting lineup.

          "There's a feeling that hitters get when you know where the sweet spot on the barrel is and Scott is at that contact point," Kapler said.

          Kingery, who signed a $24 million, six-year contract last year before playing a game in the majors, had a tough rookie season, batting just .226 while adjusting to a utility role. He went from being an everyday second baseman in the minors to starting at five positions, including 101 games at shortstop.

          "Confidence and mindset," Kingery said when asked what changed this season. "Game experience gives you confidence every time you step on the field."

          His five RBIs were a career high.

          Nick Pivetta (2-1) gave up three runs and seven hits in five innings. Mets starter Steven Matz (1-1) allowed eight runs - six earned - without retiring a batter.

          "Frustrated to not get out of the first," Matz said.

          Wilson Ramos and Michael Conforto each hit a solo homer for New York.

          Realmuto got Philadelphia started in the first with a bases-loaded drive to left-center that scored two. Kingery followed with his first homer to left for a 5-0 lead. After Mets shortstop Amed Rosario booted a grounder for his second error in the inning, Franco crushed one out to straightaway center to chase Matz.

          Realmuto lined a two-run double off left fielder Jeff McNeil's glove to cap the big inning.

          Matz had allowed only three earned runs total in his first three starts. The lefty's ERA rose from 1.65 to 4.96.

          "We didn't make a few plays, first and foremost," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "Rough night when that happens."

          OUCH

          Bryce Harper had a scare when he got hit by a pitch on the left forearm. The slugger stayed in the game after getting checked by a trainer and was 1 for 2 with a walk and three runs.

          LONG RELIEF

          Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff, recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley before the game, struck out six in four scoreless innings for his first career save. Drew Gagnon went 5 1/3 innings after replacing Matz, giving up six runs - five earned.

          EIGHT-HOLE HERO

          Franco, who used to bat in the middle of Philadelphia's lineup before Harper and Realmuto arrived, leads the team with seven homers and 17 RBIs while hitting in the eighth spot.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Mets: CF Brandon Nimmo left the game because of neck stiffness in the first inning.

          Phillies: Segura exited with left hamstring tightness after going 1 for 2 in the first inning. ... 1B Rhys Hoskins was out of the lineup because of a sprained left ankle. He was available to pinch-hit and expects to return Wednesday. ... RHP David Robertson (elbow) had an MRI that revealed a Grade 1 flexor strain. He's on the 10-day injured list and is day to day to throw.

          UP NEXT

          RHP Zack Wheeler (0-1, 10.24 ERA) starts for the Mets on Wednesday afternoon and RHP Jake Arrieta (2-1, 2.25) goes for the Phillies. Wheeler is 4-1 with a 3.36 ERA in 10 career starts vs. Philadelphia. Arrieta is 2-3 with a 2.34 mark in 10 career starts vs. New York.
