Phillies can’t catch up to deGrom, lose stellar Nola outing

Final Score: Mets 1, Phillies 0

NEW YORK — Aaron Nola vs. Jacob deGrom was the marquee pitching matchup of the weekend and it did not disappoint. deGrom struck out 10 over six innings, but was limited to just 76 pitches. Of those 76 pitches deGrom threw, 25 percent of them were swung at and missed. In other words, he was unhittable. That was expected.

Nola threw a complete game — and lost. A first inning RBI single from Pete Alonso was enough to hand the Mets their 10th victory of the season against the Phillies.
