The Mets gain a big advantage, and then wait for the victory over Phillies

PHILADELPHIA – Max Scherzer was finally able to fight with all his might now that his right hamstring didn’t bother him.

It took him a while to figure it out, but when he realized it, he looked back at Cy Young.

Scherzer calmed down after settling an early crowd, Pete Alonso drove in five series with a homer and two pairs, and the Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-6 Wednesday. Scherzer (2-0) needed to load bases in the first to recalibrate how to hit his right foot again, then hit the next shot, triggering a landing and allowing one run and five hits with seven outbursts in five innings.

“I just didn’t fully perform every move where it was supposed to,” Scherzer said. “Fortunately, I can go three in innings so that the spiral is not taken away from control and I give up a lot of running in that situation. That really set the tone and allowed our attack to go ahead. “

Alonso and the rest of the Mets ’attack provided more than enough running support for the 37-year-old three-time Cy Young Award winner. Brandon Nimmo hit a solo home run by Aaron Nola in the third inning – the Mets ’first goal in the afternoon – before the middle of the standings was broken in the fourth and fifth.

“We did a great job of pouring it all day,” said Alonso, who was again the striker of choice instead of preferring to play first base. “We had great bats from first to ninth, and that’s what it takes to win these tough divisional games.”

Alonso’s first RBI duplicate helped get Nola out of the game. The right-hander also lost command in the fourth, walking on punch and hitting two more to fill bases and get a hook from manager Joe Girardi. Nola (1-1) allowed three earned streaks on three goals in 3 ⅓ innings.

The Mets also nailed around Phillies ’bulpen, which fell five times deep after Nola’s short start and with the upcoming day off. Alonso drilled three runs of Homer to the center right in the sixth and scored 8-1 and closed Scherzer’s day after 96 throws.

“It was a big moment in the game that brought us ahead somewhat, and luckily that was enough,” Alonso said. “Philly has a great attack. They are a great team. They started going back there. But I feel that the passage for that was huge. “

SAN FRANCISCO – Logan Webb threw the ball with four strokes in eight innings, and Luke Williams doubled the only series he needed while the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Wednesday.

Webb (1-0), who became the Giants ’ace last season, allowed one run. He pulled 22 of the last 24 strikers he faced, hitting seven and none.

Through his first two starts, Webb surrendered just two runs in 14 innings.

Padres leftist Sean Manaea (1-1) was also stingy, keeping San Francisco on two runs in six innings of four hit balls. But Williams ’deuce in two series in the second erased San Diego’s 1-0 lead and ended up as the deciding goal.

The Padre were threatened in the ninth against Giants reliver Camil Doval. Jake Cronenworth came up with one infield single, Eric Hosmer walked with two outs, and Doval hit Jurickson Profara to fill the bases.

But Doval knocked out pinch hitter Matt Beaty on the field out of speed to close his first defense.
