MLB Predictions: Will Seth Lugo help Mets knock off Phillies Friday? 8/11/17


He gave up a double to Yoenis Céspedes and walked Michael Conforto before Wilmer Flores hit a three-run blast. On the other side, the Phillies have lost 11 of Pivetta's last 16 starts, are 2-10 in his last 12 outings following a team loss in their previous game, and are 3-7 in his last 10 starts after allowing five runs or more in their previous game. Velasquez didn't return after his shaky 32-pitch first inning due to numbness in his right middle finger. Velasquez had a notable dip in velocity earlier in the season and was found to have a flexor strain that kept him out almost two months.

Amed Rosario's first big-league home run, a lead off shot in the ninth to break open a 6-6 tie. The 24-year-old right-hander will face the Mets at home next.

After batting fourth and sixth in consecutive games, Franco is now down to seventh in tonight's batting order. Neil Walker went 2 for 4 with an RBI of his own, while Asdrubal Cabrera went 2 for 2 with a double. A natural first baseman, Hoskins started in left field after getting his first action there as a pro just this week at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The Phillies held a pregame moment of silence for former star catcher Darren Daulton.

The Mets won the game 10-0, and deGrom picked up the win. Daulton's No. 10 was written in the dirt behind the catcher's box. The Mets got good news when X-rays were negative.

The Indians acquired outfielder Jay Bruce from the Mets on Wednesday evening. Altherr (strained right hamstring) went on the DL on Saturday. Pivetta gave up five runs in the bottom of the first inning and another three in the bottom of the third while falling to 4-7 on the season with a 5.89 ERA. He allowed a three-run home run and his fast ball reportedly topped out at 92 miles per hour.

Yankees 5, Red Sox 4 • Aaron Hicks hit a two-run homer that sparked a five-run eighth inning as NY beat visiting Boston.
