Phillies 6, Mets 4
Game 15 - Thursday Night, April 20th in Flushing
Record - 6-9, Tied for 4th place, 4 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies took advantage of some sloppy defense to defeat Noah Syndergaard and the Mets, 6-4.
What It Means: The Phillies won this series and they opened a weekend series with the Braves on Friday night.
What Happened: Three of the five runs allowed by Syndergaard in the first three innings were unearned due to Mets errors. Tommy Joseph went 3 for 4 with an RBI and Maikel Franco hit a solo home run (3) in the eighth.
Aaron Nola earned the win, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings. Closer-of-the-day Hector Neris locked down the ninth for his first save of the season.
Featured Card: Manager Pete Mackanin isn't committing at this point to either Neris or Joaquin Benoit as the team's closer, preferring to make his decision game by game. Neris earned a card in the first series of the Topps flagship set this year, due to his fine relief from last season. He has a similar card, albeit with a white Topps logo, in the retail team set.
