Young players in spotlight as Phillies host Mets (Aug 11, 2017)

New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom was lifted in the seventh inning of Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies after appearing to get hit on the back of his right arm above the elbow on a line drive by Nick Williams. Lagares replaced Jay Bruce, who was traded to Cleveland on Wednesday night. With the Mets focusing the rest of this season on preparing their young kids for next year, they got off to a good solid start Friday.

It will be the second highly anticipated call-up for the Mets in August. The rookie shortstop entered the game hitting.161 (5 for 31).

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

17-3. The Mets have out-homered the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park 17-3 this season and now have 54 homers here since the beginning of the 2015 season. NY has won 16 of the past 19 series against the Phillies and is 4-0 in Philadelphia this season.

Amed Rosario's first career homer was clutch.

Meanwhile, Nick Pivetta's ERA has now risen above 6.00. He gave up a double to Yoenis Céspedes and walked Michael Conforto before Wilmer Flores hit a three-run blast.

"It's never a good feeling when you leave your bullpen out like that", Pivetta told Steven Matz will start game three and is 2-5 with a 5.77 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. The Mets righty has made just one appearance against the Phillies, on September 22, 2016.

Pivetta was lit up for eight runs - six earned - over 2 2/3 innings Saturday in the Phillies' loss to the Rockies. He gave up a solo home run to Chris Taylor and a two-run bomb to Cody Bellinger before being relieved.

From Rotoworld: Lugo allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Saturday.
