What Happened: Zach Eflin and Drew Anderson both threw four innings, and neither fared particularly well. Eflin gave up four runs on four hits, while Anderson allowed five runs on six hits. The Phillies had five hits and a pair of errors.
Featured Card: The only drama in this game came in the ninth inning when Mets reliever Jacob Rhame sailed a few fastballs behind the head of Rhys Hoskins. The Mets had apparently taken exception with J.T. Realmuto attempting to steal a base during the blow-out, leading to the ridiculous retaliation attempt from Rhame. Hoskins would have his revenge in the following game.
