Phillies: RHP Nick Pivetta (4-7, 5.89) will look to build on the success he had in his only other start against the Mets when he allowed one run on one hit in seven innings on July 10 in NY.

"Even though I've had a bad couple of days, this really helps my confidence", said Rosario through a translator. The rookie shortstop entered the game batting.161 (5 for 31).

The 29-year-old right-hander initially smiled when manager Terry Collins came out to check on his star pitcher after Williams' hard shot drilled deGrom on the back of his right arm just above the elbow. "He acts like a rookie, he knows his place and that's big in a clubhouse". He listens, visits, he's going to be good. Jerry Blevins received his 6th blown save of the year, but Hansel Robles picked him up, getting the win to improve to 7-3 this season while A.J. Ramos threw a scoreless 9th for his 22nd save of the campaign.

Flores hit a three-run shot to straightaway center in the first off Vince Velasquez (2-7).

"It's good to be able to rebound in game and make positive adjustments", Lugo said.

Pivetta was lit up for eight runs - six earned - over 2 2/3 innings Saturday in the Phillies' loss to the Rockies.

"It's a learning process", Pivetta said.

Neil Walker drove in a run and also scored a run on Cespedes' single in the fifth, though it was ruled an unearned run.

Yoenis Cespedes hit his 13th homer of the season in the third.

. Now the question is whether Smith's home run production was a result of the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League or a transformation in his swing.

NY entered Thursday averaging 2.4 runs in the losses while going 3-10 over its previous 13 contests, but the Mets belted four home runs and matched their offensive output from the last five games combined in a 10-0 rout in the opener. But where we stand right now, I'm clueless just as much as they are and just as much as you guys are.

Philadelphia's Odubel Herrera extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games with a first-inning double.

The Mets have out-homered the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park 17-3 this season. The Mets are banking on the 22-year-old Smith to anchor first base into 2018 and beyond. On the other side, the Phillies have lost 11 of Pivetta's last 16 starts, are 2-10 in his last 12 outings following a team loss in their previous game, and are 3-7 in his last 10 starts after allowing five runs or more in their previous game. Assuming the bruise is as minor as is being said, deGrom will take a stellar 13-5 record, 3.21 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 179 strikeouts in 151 1/3 innings into a date in the Bronx next.

"Just a contusion, so we're very lucky", Collins said. "He'll warm up, calm down and realize it's the same game played by better players and he's one of them".
