Since trading away their top power hitter the New York Mets have had an offensive breakthrough, something they will try to maintain Saturday in the third of four games at the Philadelphia Phillies. NY improved to 33-15 at Citizens Bank Park since the start of the 2015 season, which includes wins in all five meetings at Philadelphia this year.
Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola continued to pitch like one of the best pitchers in baseball with another stellar seven innings in a 3-1 victory over the Mets.
Hoby Milner and Luis Garcia combined to shut the door in the ninth after Tommy Joseph's sacrifice fly in the eighth gave the Phillies an insurance run. Cesar Hernandez and Freddy Galvis each delivered an RBI single in the fifth to account for the Phillies' runs against Matz.
