Friday night’s game between the Mets and the Phillies had a playoff feel to it. And like most playoff games, this one featured excellent pitching, and a few pivotal close plays. Fortunately, the Phillies had a slight advantage in both those areas, giving them a 2-1 win.
Max Scherzer has given the Phillies plenty of trouble over the years, but early on Friday, it looked like things might be different. New leadoff man Bryson Stott led off with a double, Alec Bohm singled him home, and the Phillies seemed to be on their way to a big offensive night.
