    Mets, Phillies Will Again Claw at Each Other -- and Standings



    The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies both damaged their long-shot playoff hopes during the final days of August. But despite being further back in the wild-card standings, the Mets will begin September feeling better about themselves than the Phillies.

    The up-and-down Mets will look to complete a three-game road sweep Sunday night when they visit the Phillies. Marcus Stroman (7-12, 3.29 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for New York against Philadelphia's Zach Eflin (8-11, 4.50) in a battle of right-handers.

    The Mets won Saturday afternoon as Wilson Ramos had four hits to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 24 games and Todd Frazier delivered three hits and a pair of RBIs in a 6-3 win.

    The two-game winning streak follows a six-game losing streak for the Mets that threatened to knock them out of the playoff race they'd climbed back into by going a baseball-best 27-10 between July 12 and Aug. 22. New York finally gained some ground in the chase for the second wild-card berth Saturday as well, as it pulled within four games of Chicago following the Cubs' 2-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

    "We have an opportunity," Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters following the game Saturday. "And that's the way we've always viewed everything. There's an opportunity to win the next game. And if we continue that focus, we can continue to give ourselves more opportunities day in and day out. And that's what you want."

    The Phillies are incrementally closer to a playoff spot (3 1/2 games behind the Cubs) than the Mets, but were in a far more dour mood Saturday. Philadelphia has produced just two winning streaks longer than two games since July 1, a span in which it has gone 25-25.

    "Super frustrating," Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters following Saturday's loss. "It's a game we have to win. We have to come out (Sunday) and be better."

    Stroman took the loss last Tuesday, when he gave up four runs over six innings and the Mets fell to the Cubs 5-2. He is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA and has yet to produce a quality start in five tries since being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for a pair of minor league pitchers on July 28.

    Eflin earned a long-awaited win in his most recent start on Aug. 24, when he allowed two runs over six innings and the Phillies cruised past the Miami Marlins 9-3 on the road. The victory was the first in 10 appearances (six starts) for Eflin, who was 0-4 with an 8.42 ERA in between wins.

    Stroman is 2-0 with a 1.86 ERA in three career appearances (one start) against the Phillies. Eflin is 3-4 with a 6.00 ERA in nine starts against the Mets, whom he's faced more than any other opponent.

          Kingery Lifts Phillies Over Mets 5-2 to Avoid Sweep


          by AARON BRACY

          PHILADELPHIA, PA -- The New York Mets gave Scott Kingery some extra motivation to get a big hit, and he made them pay.

          Kingery snapped an eighth-inning tie with a three-run double and the Philadelphia Phillies beat New York 5-2 on Sunday night to avert a three-game sweep.

          Brad Miller hit a solo homer and a double for the Phillies, who pulled within 2 1/2 games of the Chicago Cubs for the second NL wild card.

          "It's a big win for us," Kingery said. "We needed it, and hopefully that can get some momentum rolling for us."

          After the Mets tied it at 2 on a wild pitch in the top of the eighth, Bryce Harper led off the bottom half with a single against Daniel Zamora (0-1), who was just recalled from the minors. Jeurys Familia walked Rhys Hoskins before Miller flied out to deep center field and Brandon Nimmo tried to throw out Harper at third, allowing both runners to advance.

          Mets manager Mickey Callaway said he would've preferred Nimmo's throw go to second to keep Hoskins at first and the double play in order. With runners now on second and third, Callaway chose to intentionally walk Cesar Hernandez.

          Kingery understood the strategic move, but it helped spur him on. He lined a 1-0 pitch into the left-center gap to clear the bases.

          "It's part of the game, obviously, to put the double play in order, but it gives you a little extra motivation to want to get a big hit there," Kingery said. "So just go up there with your plan and try to execute it."

          Pete Alonso hit his 43rd homer and Wilson Ramos extended his hitting streak to 25 games with a fourth-inning double for the Mets, who are four games behind the Cubs.

          "We had a good opportunity today, but we still won the series," Alonso said.

          Hector Neris (3-5) got the final five outs for Philadelphia.

          "We leaned heavily on Hector and he delivered," manager Gabe Kapler said.

          New York tied it in the eighth when Nimmo, playing in his first game since May 20 due to a neck injury, scored from third on a wild pitch by Neris during a crazy inning.

          The Mets put runners on second and third with one out for Jeff McNeil, who entered Sunday batting .326. But his slump reached 0 for 13 when he grounded to Hoskins at first base and he threw out pinch-runner Rajai Davis at the plate.

          Davis slid headfirst on the play and took out the legs of veteran umpire Joe West, who ended up laying on Davis for several seconds before finally being helped up by Neris and calling Davis out.

          Neris was brought in after Mike Morin allowed the first two batters to reach before Luis Guillorme's sacrifice bunt advanced both runners.

          FOR STARTERS

          Phillies starter Zach Eflin pitched seven stellar innings, allowing only Alonso's first-inning homer and two other hits. But Kapler elected to pinch-hit for Eflin in the seventh with Philadelphia ahead 2-1 even though the right-hander had thrown just 84 pitches.

          Mets starter Marcus Stroman also pitched well, giving up two runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and two walks in six-plus innings. Stroman was lifted after Adam Haseley's leadoff double in the seventh.

          MILLER TIME

          Miller was a late addition to the lineup after shortstop Jean Segura was scratched due to the death of his grandmother.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Mets: 2B Robinson Cano, on the injured list since Aug. 5 with a torn left hamstring, is planning a second rehab start Monday at Class A Brooklyn. If all goes well, Cano told reporters after Saturday's game that he could join the Mets as early as Tuesday.

          Phillies: OF Jay Bruce was reinstated from the 10-day IL. Out since Aug. 9 with a left flexor strain, Bruce was batting .250 with 10 homers and 29 RBIs in 34 games with Philadelphia. He grounded out while batting for Eflin in the seventh.

          UP NEXT

          Mets: Open a three-game set in Washington on Monday afternoon. RHP Noah Syndergaard (9-7, 4.14 ERA) will look to bounce back from his last start against the Cubs when he allowed a career-high 10 runs (nine earned) in three innings. RHP Joe Ross (3-3, 5.36) goes for the Nationals.

          Phillies: LHP Drew Smyly (2-6, 6.95) opposes Reds RHP Anthony DeSciafani (9-7, 4.05) in the first of four games at Cincinnati.
