The Mets were obliterated by the Phillies on Tuesday night 14-3. Steven Matz did not record a single out in the first inning as the Phillies scored ten runs. The Mets offense on the night was fueled by a pair of solo homers off the bat of Wilson Ramos and Michael Conforto. Zack Wheeler will get the call this afternoon in the rubber game of the series.
According to Gary Cohen on the SNY broadcast, Ron Darling underwent his medical procedure yesterday and is resting comfortably in New York.
