Mets 6 Phillies 0 as Chris Bassitt bests Zach Wheeler


The Mets beat the Phillies 6-0 for their 17th Win in the last 20 games solidifying their hold on first place in the National League East with a 5 1/2 game lead over Atlanta.  Some of the highlights of the game:

  • Chris Bassitt pitched 5 scoreless innings to get the victory.  The bullpen held the Phillies scoreless for the last 4 innings.
  • Francisco Lindor got his 82nd RBI to set the Mets team record for RBIs by a shortstop
  • Daniel Vogelbach homered while Mark Canha got two hits.
The Mets are now 35 games over .500 and will face the Braves for 4 games in Atlanta.  Following that is 4 game series against the Phillies and two games against the Bronx Bombers at Yankee Stadium.
