Young players in spotlight as Phillies host Mets (Aug 11, 2017)
New York's Jacob deGrom pitched brilliantly until leaving in the seventh inning due to a contusion on his right triceps after being hit on a line drive by Nick Williams, and the Mets homered four times in a 10-0 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night. He finished the night 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and also drew a pair of walks. He couldn't handle Odubel Herrera's hard chopper right at him in the sixth, allowing a run to score, but was solid otherwise. Wilmer Flores, Brandon Nimmo and Dominic Smith added base hits of their own in the winning effort for the Mets.
Jorge Alfaro went 1-5 with three strikeouts.
For the season, Velasquez now has a 5.13 ERA. This will be Matz's first career start against Philadelphia.
The Mets have won seven of their first 10 meetings with the Phillies this season and are 33-15 against them since the start of the 2015 season.
Yoenis Cespedes hit his 13th homer of the season in the third, a three-run shot that gave the Mets a brief 4-3 lead.

NY is 1-6 in Matz's last 7 starts and 8-1 in their last 9 road games against a team with a losing home record while the under is 6-1 in Matz's last 7 division starts. His last outing was the worst of that stretch as he surrendered eight runs (six earned) in just 2 2/3 innings against the Colorado Rockies on Saturday. NY is 39-14 in the last 53 meetings between these two teams in Philadelphia.
