For the second straight night, the Phillies had to face one of the Mets’ ace pitchers. On Friday, they were able to muster just enough offense against Max Scherzer to earn the win. But facing Jacob deGrom on Saturday, the only thing they mustered was a high strikeout total in a 1-0 loss.
The Phillies got a hit courtesy of Rhys Hoskins in the first inning, but the two strikeouts were much more representative of how the game would go. They wouldn’t get another baserunner until the sixth inning, and had just five altogether, compared to the 14 times they struck out.
