2017 Topps Allen & Ginter #61 Tommy Joseph

Mets 7, Phillies 6
Game 113 - Friday Night, August 11th in Philadelphia
Record - 42-71, 5th place, 26 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  The Phils battled back to tie the game in the eighth, but Amed Rosario hit his first big league home run off Hector Neris in the ninth to lead the Mets to a 7-6 victory.

What It Means:  As Jim Salisbury Tweeted, the Phillies are 0-5 against the Mets at home this season and they've been out-homered 17-4 in those games.

What Happened:  Cesar Hernandez's solo home run (7) tied the game up temporarily.  Nick Pivetta pitched only 4 2/3 innings, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits, including two home runs.

Featured Card:  Tommy Joseph has been slumping lately, and the addition of Rhys Hoskins, a fellow first baseman, to the roster can't be great for his confidence.  But in this game he had a pair of hits, knocking in a pair of runs.

Transaction:  Prior to the game, Vince Velasquez landed on the 10-day disabled list and Ty Kelly was recalled from the IronPigs.
