Game 12 - Wednesday Night, April 14th in Flushing
Record - 6-6, 2nd Place, 1 game behind the Mets
One Sentence Summary: The slumping Phillies offense continued to be on display as the Mets easily won, 5-1.
What It Means: The Good Phight used one word to sum up their game summary post: Sadness. Weather permitting, they'll try to avoid a four-game sweep this afternoon with Jacob deGrom on the mound for the Mets.
What Happened: Zack Wheeler deserved better. After struggling in the first and allowing a pair of Mets runs, Wheeler settled in and battled through the next five-plus innings. David Peterson and three Mets relievers held the Phillies to three hits, including a solo home run from Jean Segura. The Phillies offense struck out an inexcusable 14 times, looking lost at times at the plate.
Featured Card/Transaction: Prior to the game, Mickey Moniak (of) was recalled from the alternate training site and Adam Haseley (of) was placed on the restricted list for personal reasons. It was announced Haseley had left the team. I wish nothing but good things for Haseley and I hope he sorts out whatever it is that caused him to make this move.
