PHILADELPHIA – Someone had to win.
And the one who arrived from Monday night was Mets, who took a lead in the 11th inning that they could not waste, with a Rhys Hoskins error on Michael Conforto's grounder to see progress in a 7-6 win of Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
Conforto's shot made Juan Lagares, who had opened the inning with an infield single against Pat Neshek.
Edwin Diaz hit a perfect 11th to secure rescue, marathon ended in 4 hours, 29 minutes.
Jeurys Familia fell in eighth, giving Mets his third blown lead of the game. Jeff McNeil's dive stop to start a 5-4-3 double game seemed to have Familia ready to skate, but disaster followed. Familia went the two closer to load the bases before Robert Gsellman came in and went Jean Segura in four places to force a run, tying it 6-6.
Noah Syndergaard became the third straight starting litter for the flop and joined Jason Vargas and Jacob deGrom, who Mets looks to get their twisted rotation in order.
Seth Lugo's name was fluent as a possible substitute for the besieged Vargas, but the right-hand man at this night emphasized his value for the bull-sticks. Lugo fired two pointless innings of relief and left the relay to Familia in eighth. But Odubel Herrera's leadoff single and Cesar Hernandez's walk gave Familia an immediate danger before Maikel Franco hit the double game.
Syndergaard survived in some way through five innings, which enabled nine hits and three walks with nine strikes over 1
Syndergaard's greatest disaster was the third when he went to the potter Aaron Nola to start the inning. The Phillies did three runs to tie it 3-3, with J.T. Realmuto two-round single gives the punch.
Brandon Nimmo solo homer in sixth against reliever Jose Alvarez gave Mets a 6-5 lead. The blast was Nimmo third of the season and others in the last four games.
Nimmo went in his previous plate appearance, in fourth and made on Robinson Cano's double-running double which gave Mets a 5-3 lead. J. D. Davis & # 39; leadoff single started that rally.
Franco hammered a high shooter in fourth for a two-run homer who tied it 5-5 after Syndergaard had managed the lead in the previous half-race. Hernandez singled led away from the bottom of the frame before Franco hit a rocket in the left-hand seats.
Nola, who finished third in last year's NL Cy Young Award votes, behind Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer, had a third straight outing. Nola lasted just four innings and got five earned runs of seven hits and three walks and saw his ERA increase to 7.45.
Mets pounded Nola in third, as consecutive singles of Conforto, Wilson Ramos and McNeil brought in three runs. Pete Alonso's walk began the rally.
Syndergaard fled the trouble in the first when Ramos threw out Hoskins who tried to steal others to finish the inauguration. Segura, who stole second base earlier in the inning, was left on the third base.
