Aaron Nola continues to shine as Phillies top Mets

Aaron Nola continues to shine as Phillies top Mets”

New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo is in the lineup against the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday night. His 10 home runs in 18 games at Citizens Bank Park are the most he has in any visiting ballpark.

Yoenis Cespedes drove in four runs, Michael Conforto homered for the fourth time in six games and rookie shortstop Amed Rosario had his first career blast to break a tie in the ninth inning and lift the Mets to a 7-6 win Friday.

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. At 3.97 runs, his Mets have the third-lowest implied total of the night. Freddy Galvis followed with an RBI single, scoring Maikel Franco, to give the Phillies a 2-1 lead.

Williams went 1-for-1 with an infield single, two walks and a run scored for the Phillies.

Rhys Hoskins is still looking for his first hit, going 0-4. Ricardo Pinto worked himself into trouble with a pair of walks, but blew a 98-mph fastball past Cespedes on an 0-2 pitch to finish the inning.

As Curtis Granderson takes a rest on Saturday, Nimmo will be in right field and batting leadoff for the Mets as the club opposes righty Aaron Nola.

In his last eight starts, Nola has a 1.72 ERA.

Steven Matz (2-6, 5.54 ERA) tossed 5 2/3 innings for NY, striking out one and surrendering two runs, both earned, in the bottom of the fifth inning.
