Mets Morning News: McNeil and Escobar avoid the injured list, Díaz notches 200th career save

The Mets evened their series against the Phillies in another close contest between the two clubs. This time, the Mets edged out their NL East rivals 1-0, as Jacob deGrom pitched six shutout innings and struck out ten batters while walking none. Aaron Nola was brilliant as well, scattering four hits over eight innings of work. The lone run of the game came on a first-inning RBI single from Pete Alonso that drove in Starling Marte. Seth Lugo and Trevor May each pitched a scoreless inning in relief and Edwin Díaz allowed the tying and go-ahead runs to get into scoring position in the ninth, but he struck out Nick Castellanos to seal the victory and earn the 200th save of his career.
