Pivetta baffled the Mets in NY on July 2, however, giving up only one hit - a solo shot to T.J. Rivera - over seven innings to get the win.

Fantasy Impact A sigh of relief for DeGrom, the Mets and fantasy owners alike as the X-rays came back negative after he was caught by a Nick Williams line drive. His last outing was the worst of that stretch as he surrendered eight runs (six earned) in just 2 2/3 innings against the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.

The Mets have out-homered the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park 17-3 this season. Mets starter Seth Lugo gave up five runs and eight hits, striking out a career-best eight in 51/3 innings.

Conforto stayed hot and blew the game open in the seventh with an opposite-field, three-run homer off the foul pole in left. With home runs from Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes, the Mets continued their bombardment of this bandbox with 54 homers over their last 24 games here. Despite sporting a 4-2 road record, the 27-year-old Centenary product has been much less effective at home (3.51 ERA, .229 batting average against) than outside of NY (5.26, .309).

Curtis Granderson went 0-for-5 Friday night and left four runners stranded.

Hoskins, meanwhile, had a.966 OPS and hit 29 homers at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season.

The Phillies held a pregame moment of silence for former star catcher Darren Daulton.

The Phillies jumped ahead 3-0 in the first inning. Daulton's No. 10 was written in the dirt behind the catcher's box.

That news circulated on Thursday, which apparently frustrated an unnamed Mets official. Lagares had been on the DL since June 16 with a fractured right thumb. The Mets have an opening for some playing time after trading outfielder Jay Bruce to Cleveland on Wednesday night.

Neymar won't report Barcelona to Federation Internationale de Football Association over frozen €26m loyalty bonus
Brazilian worldwide , Neymar has been cleared to make his Paris Saint-Germain debut away at Guingamp this weekend. The player reportedly sent an email to the Reds informing them of his desire to be transferred.

"He's still very aggressive", Mets manager Terry Collins said. Altherr (strained right hamstring) went on the DL on Saturday. Steven Matz will start game three and is 2-5 with a 5.77 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. He allowed a three-run home run and his fast ball reportedly topped out at 92 miles per hour.
