The Phillies come from behind in eighth place to beat the Mets

After a fantastic 2021 season, all eyes were on Ranger Suarez when he took the plunge on Monday night. After limited work in the spring, Suarez would have his pitch number limited to “around 60” according to Joe Girardi.

Brandon Nimmo started the evening by lacing a single on the second pitch of the match.

Starlet Marte then tore a ground ball back to the Ranger, who jumped off his glove against Alec Bohm. The third basemen then fired the ball down the right field line and put both runners in scoring position with no outs.

Bohm was then tested on back-to-back play in the hot corner, making them both. Unfortunately for the Phils, Nimmo would come home to score on a Pete Alonso pitch to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. New Met, Eduardo Escobar made his presence marked with an RBI single to the right field, which brought Marte home.

JD Davis then pulled a walk, which was followed by a bloop single to the right by Mark Canha, bringing the third run home in the inning.

Taijuan Walker worked quickly with the top of the order at the bottom of the first and pulled the trio from Schwarber, Realmuto and Harper in order.

Once again, Alec Bohm would find a bouncing ball on its way to start at the top of the second. The first-round pick in the first round then sailed its throw over Rhys Hoskins’ head, for his second foul in as many innings.

After a sacrifice shot, McCann moved to second place, the ball again found its way to third place in the next two games. Bohm made them both and received a sarcastic yet loud cheer from the audience in Citizens Bank Park.

The Mets starter returned to the mound at the bottom of the second and eliminated the reds and whites in order again.

With the Phillies already down by three against nothing, the top of the third round started more dramatically than fans had hoped. Pete Alonso chopped a pitched to the left, leading to a third throwing error that was charged to Alec Bohm at third base.

With two outs at the top of the third and runners on the first and second, Power Rangers day was over as he hit 63 places.

Nick Nelson would be the first out of the armpit when he made his Phillies debut. The right-hander hit 98 km / h as he blanketed out of trouble to finish the inning and knocked out Luis Guillorme.

David Peterson came in to start the bottom of the third inning when Tajuan Walker’s night was complete. The 2021 All-Star threw two perfect innings while hitting four. Walker is still working back from January’s knee surgery, which may explain the early exit.

Jean Segura led from the bottom half of the frame with a base hit, but was subsequently picked from first base a few pitches later. Peterson issued a walk-out to Bohm, but withdrew the next two Phils, and completed the third.

The top half of the fourth saw Nick Nelson sit down and do quick work with the New York squad.

A doubles game with runners on the corners stopped Philadelphia’s momentum from completing the fourth.

Nelson returned to the bump to begin the fifth. The former Yankee did so effectively, retreating into the heart of the Met lineup in succession. At the bottom of the inning saw an Alec Bohm double, but no other offense from Philly.

To start the top half of the sixth inning, Nick Nelson continued his sensational first day on the job by knocking out JD Davis. MV3 then gave fans a chance to leave their seats with this sliding grip in the sixth.

Later in the competition, Harper appeared to be experiencing pain in his throwing arm. Although the right fielder would remain in the ball game.

The Mets hit on their fourth run of the match as Francisco Lindor ran in James McCann in the seventh.

Fast forward to the bottom of the eighth, the attack finally came alive for the Phillies after seven dull laps.

Alec Bohm took the lead in the inning, the third time in the match, where he reached safe base. A pinch-hitting Johan Camargo single to push Bohm to third.

The top of the order then came to the fore when Kyle Schwarber grounded in a field player’s choice to bring Bohm home. RBI was the third in the season for the 2014 first round election.

JT Realmuto followed it up by decimating a full counter lane well into the stands on the left field for its first home run in 2022.

Now with 4-3 behind, Bryce Harper went to the dish to meet Joely Rodriguez, who remained in the fight for the homer. Unfortunately, it was Rodriguez who beat Bryce and beat it twice MVP.

When Nick Castellanos appeared, Buck Showalter made the switch to right-handed player Seth Lugo. Castellanos displayed tremendous plate discipline throughout the match bat and pulled a two-out walk.

After the walk, Rhys Hoskins took his turn and delivered a rocket down the left field line. Nick Castellanos channeled his inner Bryce Harper and pulled around the bases to score from the first. RBI was the fourth in the 2022 season for Hoskins.

Sir Didi Gregorius came through giant and delivered an RBI double-go-ahead. This was the second run in the new campaign for Didi and it could not have come at a better time.

After four hits across the first seven innings, the Phillies put up five runs to come from behind and take their first lead of the game.

Credit must be given to Nick Nelson for allowing the Phillies back in this game, thanks to his four innings of a running ball. Seranthony Dominguez was again effective in his one and a third inning.

Now to the last frame.

Joe Girardi moved to Brad Hand to try and lock in the win.

Dom Smith was the first victim when Hand got his second strikeout in the red pin stripes.

Simon Muzziotti, who made his MLB debut as a defensive replacement, was tested thanks to a James McCann flying ball. The 23-year-old played without incident to record the other out.

When the faithful Philly got up with two on the road in the ninth, Brandon Nimmo took his crack at his former teammate.

It was the 32-year-old left-handed player who won the match, locked the victory and knocked Nimmo out. The rescue was Hands first as Phillie. Seranthony Dominguez was credited with his first victory in the major tournaments since 2019.

Monday night’s victory cemented that things are definitely different in Philadelphia this season.

The bullpen only allowed a run across six and a third innings, and the offense came alive when we thought they were dead.

The message is clear after the win, do not count the Phillies out of a match this year.
