    Reeling Mets, Phillies Kick Off Four-game Series



    The Philadelphia Phillies suffered their seventh straight loss shortly after 4 p.m. on Sunday. But it took the New York Mets less than two hours to make the Phillies' struggles a secondary story heading into Monday's opener of a four-game series between the two reeling division rivals.

    The Phillies and Mets will both be in dire need of a win when Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin (6-7, 2.83 ERA) takes the mound against New York left-hander Steven Matz (5-5, 4.28).

    The Phillies' longest losing streak of the year continued Sunday afternoon, when the visiting Miami Marlins completed a three-game sweep with a 6-4 victory. The Mets' weekend in Chicago went from promising to soap operatic with a 5-3 loss to the Cubs that cost New York a chance at winning the four-game series.

    Mets ace Jacob deGrom struck out nine in six innings and exited with a 3-2 lead, but Seth Lugo, New York's most reliable reliever, gave up a three-run homer to Javier Baez on his 42nd and final pitch of a laborious 1 1/3-inning stint.

    Afterward, Mets manager Mickey Callaway bristled at repeated questions over his lack of usage of closer Edwin Diaz, who has pitched just once in the last eight days and didn't warm up Sunday.

    "Again, no, we're not going to use him for five outs," Callaway said. "I know you guys keep on asking, but my answer is going to stay the same."

    Shortly thereafter, Callaway directed a profanity-laced diatribe at a reporter who said he'd see Callaway Monday in Philadelphia. Mets pitcher Jason Vargas then stared down the reporter and profanely declared he'd knock him out.

    No punches were thrown and the Mets issued an apology a few hours later, which concluded with the promise to " ... have further discussions internally with all involved parties." First-year New York general manager Brodie Van Wagenen is reportedly expected to join the team in Philadelphia on Monday.

    A distracted Mets team might be the best medicine for the Phillies, who have been outscored 48-15 during their losing streak, a stretch in which Philadelphia has gone from 1 1/2 games behind the National League East-leading Atlanta Braves to 6 1/2 games back.

    The struggles mere months after signing superstar free agent Bryce Harper have increased the scrutiny on second-year manager Gabe Kapler and his coaching staff. On Sunday, Kapler continued to stress the need for the Phillies to remain a cohesive unit.

    "It's ebbs and flows," Kapler said. "It's times of (poor) performance and times of successes and we get together as a group in the tough times. We fight together. That's what we're doing right now."

    Eflin lost his second straight start last Wednesday, when he gave up three runs (two earned) over six innings as the Phillies fell to the Washington Nationals, 6-2. Matz also lost Wednesday, when he allowed five runs over five innings as the Mets absorbed a 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Braves.

    Eflin is 2-4 with a 5.40 ERA in eight career starts against the Mets, whom he's faced more than any opponent. Matz is 1-3 with a 5.02 ERA in seven starts against the Phillies.

      • The Phillies and Mets have split their first six meetings of the season, with each team taking two of three at home. Philadelphia plated a season-high 14 runs in an April 16 home win, its most runs against New York at Citizens Bank Park since scoring 16 on Sept. 28, 2005.
      • The Phillies enter this one averaging 2.1 runs during a seven-game skid, and are averaging an NL-worst 3.8 runs this month -- down from 4.9 in May. They've lost 14 straight games when scoring three or less.
      • Rhys Hoskins homered in the Phillies' last game against the Mets on April 24, giving him eight in his last 16 matchups dating to last August. The last Phillie to hit eight home runs in a 16-game span against the Mets was Ryan Howard between 2006-07.
      • Bryce Harper is just 3-for-20 with 11 strikeouts and three walks in six games against the Mets this season. This is his most strikeouts in a six-game span against the Mets in a single season since striking out 12 times in 2014.
      • Pete Alonso established a Mets rookie franchise record by hitting his 27th home run on Sunday. Twenty-one of his homers have come off a pitcher the first time he's facing him in the game, the most by a Met since Hall of Famer Mike Piazza had 22 such home runs in 2001.
      • In 17 games since June 6, the Mets are batting .326 with runners in scoring position, the third-best mark in MLB. In their previous 18 games from May 18-June 5, they ranked 24th in the majors in batting with runners in scoring position at .233.

            Phillies Snap 7-Game Losing Skid with 13-7 Win Over Mets


            by ROB MAADDI

            PHILADELPHIA, PA -- The Philadelphia Phillies busted out of their slump in a big way.

            Maikel Franco hit a go-ahead two-run homer, Rhys Hoskins, Jean Segura and Jay Bruce also went deep and the Phillies beat the New York Mets 13-7 Monday night, snapping a seven-game losing streak.

            "We executed on our game plan to keep things light, to come in with a little swagger," manager Gabe Kapler said. "Sometimes a little swagger pre-game leads to swagger in-game. I think we got some of that back."

            Zach Eflin (7-7) struggled through five innings, allowing six runs and 11 hits but got a rare outburst from his offense. The Phillies scored only 15 runs total during their losing streak.

            Todd Frazier, Wilson Ramos, Michael Conforto and Dominic Smith each hit solo homers for the Mets.

            "It was tough one," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "They swung the bats well and we did, too. They kept piling on runs and let their pitchers relax a little bit."

            Steven Matz (5-6) got roughed up again in Philadelphia. The lefty gave up seven runs and 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings. He's 0-4 with an 8.18 ERA in six career starts in Philly's hitter-friendly ballpark. Matz didn't record an out and allowed eight runs - six earned - against the Phillies on April 16.

            The Phillies had lost 16 of 22 since May 29, going from first in the NL East to second place behind Atlanta.

            They went ahead to stay against the Mets on Franco's 10th homer in the fifth, a two-run shot to straightaway center that made it 7-6. Segura's RBI double on a liner misplayed by Jeff McNeil in right field made it 8-6. Segura had four hits and fell a triple shy of the cycle.

            Franco, who was 3 for 4 with three RBIs, hadn't been playing regularly but was back in the lineup because he's had success against Matz.

            "We need this guy. We're a different type of team because Maik can change the dynamic of the game from one swing of the bat" Segura said.

            Cesar Hernandez's RBI single off Brooks Pounders extended the lead to 9-6 in the sixth. J.T. Realmuto snapped an 0-for-19 slump with a triple to center before Hernandez's hit. Hernandez stole second and scored on Franco's single for a 10-6 lead.

            Bruce's second career pinch-hit homer was a two-run shot that made it 12-6.

            Bryce Harper, back in the No. 3 spot in the lineup after leading off for a few games, had a pair of RBI doubles, and the Phillies had a season-high 19 hits.

            MICKEY'S CALL

            Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen denied a report that he told Callaway to remove Jacob deGrom from a game at Arizona after the ace righty suffered a hip cramp.

            "It's not true," he said. "No in-game decisions are ever called down to the dugout."

            Van Wagenen said it's common to "communicate with the training staff anytime a player suffers an injury" but insisted Callaway makes all performance-based decisions during the game.

            SORRY I'M SORRY

            Wagenen announced the team fined Callaway and pitcher Jason Vargas for their expletive-filled confrontation with a reporter after Sunday's loss at Wrigley Field. Callaway apologized for the incident two hours after initially declining to say he was sorry in his first meeting with reporters before the game.

            VOTE OF CONFIDENCE

            Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said Gabe Kapler will be the team's manager through the end of the season and the coaching staff will also remain the same.

            "I believe in our guys," Klentak said. "The key to this unit succeeding is the group coming together and doing it as a unit."

            ROSTER MOVE

            The Phillies selected the contract of RHP Fernando Salas and optioned RHP Enyel De Los Santos to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

            TRAINER'S ROOM

            Mets: RHP Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to start for Class A Brooklyn on Tuesday. He's been out with a strained right hamstring.

            Phillies: RHP Tommy Hunter threw a scoreless inning in a rehab appearance on Sunday with Class A Clearwater. Hunter has been out since spring training with right forearm strain.

            UP NEXT

            RHP Walker Lockett (0-1, 23.14 ERA) makes his fifth career start and second for the Mets on Tuesday night, and Jake Arrieta (6-6, 4.12) goes for the Phillies.
