Who’s in first? Not the Mets!
Back-to-back-to-back home runs in the top of the ninth made Saturday evening interesting, but it wasn’t enough. Another L in the books.
The Mets have now lost two in a row in Philly and nine of their last 12. The Phillies have a 1.5 game lead in the National League East and it appears the end of the Mets’ slide is going to take more than late-game heroics.
Will Taijuan Walker find his pre-All-Star Game form and get the Mets a W or will the Phillies roll off a three-game sweep?
