Mets offense survives in Phillips’ doublehead sweeper

A pulse can be detected from this Mets lineup on Tuesday, extending two games over the final eight innings, and carried out on this day.

Jonathan Villar delivered a walk-off hit in Game 1 and was produced generously by Brandon Nimmo at Nightman, allowing the Mets to celebrate Phillips’ doubleheader sweep in front of 7,611 at Citi Field.

The Mets won 4-3 in eight innings in the first game before taking on the Knights.



Nimmo reached base five times in two matches. In Nightmare, he completed 3-for-4 with three RBIs to increase his OPS to 1.146.

Marcus Strowman’s gem in Game 2 led the Mets to consecutive wins for the first time this season. Strowman, who threw just nine pitches before his debut against the Marlins, was suspended from the rain, playing six century innings, giving up four hits. After a strong start by Strowman last week in Philadelphia, in which he allowed one earned run in six innings.

In the nightpack, the Mets got busy against Aaron Nola in the fourth inning, when Game 1’s hero Villar delivered an RBI double before Nemo’s two-run single extended a 3–0 lead. Nemo scored another run in the sixth after Tomas Nido’s first career triple.

Brandon Nimmo won the two-run single by two wickets in the Mets' 4–0 fourth inning.

Jeff McNeill started the rally by reaching an infield single in the fourth. He barely defeated the first throw and Phyllis challenged the call, but it was resumed.

Willer hit an eighth-inning RBI single against Hector Neris in the first game to complete a Mets return.

Pete Alonso’s RBI single tied it in the eighth – Francisco Lindor was second base as runner according to the rules in extra starts (playing double-header seven innings) – before Villar shot it to left field. Finished with.

The Mets had just three hits in the game and entered the inning and were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position before Alonso was given.

Didi Gregorius’ RBI violated a single against the change in the eighth, giving Travis May a 3-2 lead. The run was rendered useless after James Machen was charged with a pass ball after a catch, allowing Andrew McKeon to reach third base.

Michael Conforto was ranked sixth with a 100 mph fastball in the right wrist by leftist Jose Alvarado. Alvarado came in with a fastball of the same magnitude after Alvrado threw high and tight.

Jean Segura’s infield single in the sixth against Miguel Castro tied it 2-2 with two sixes. Although Rice Hawkins led off the inning and Bryce Harper singled, Castro was on the sidelines to avoid being dissuaded after running out of Alec Böhm and Gregorius got a fielder to hit. But Segura hit a dribbler to third base and beat Guillerme’s throw, while Hoskins scored to tie the game.

After four strong innings, the Taijuan Walker faded into the fifth and was eliminated with one out. Pinch-hitter Brad Miller made his second straight walk of the Fillings, this one on four pitches, prompting manager Luis Rojas to call Castro from Bullo.

Castro took on Andrew McCutchen on a change before Phyllis attempted a double steal and Roman Quinn was tagged in by Gillerme, who jumped to catch McCain’s throw. Guillerme landed on Quinn and appeared to move the bag with a body blow, allowing for the tag.

Walker’s final line consisted of eight strikes and three runs in 4 ¹ / with innings, with a run allowed on three hits. In his Mets debut on Thursday, the right-hander scored two earned runs in six innings against the Marlins without a decision.
