Mets' deGrom hit on right arm in 10-0 rout of Phillies

Mets' deGrom hit on right arm in 10-0 rout of Phillies

17-3. The Mets have out-homered the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park 17-3 this season and now have 54 homers here since the beginning of the 2015 season.

The opener was not kind to either starting pitcher, however, as Philadelphia's Vince Velasquez left the game after the first inning because of numbness in his right middle finger, while New York's Jacob deGrom exited in the seventh with a bruised right triceps after he was hit by a line drive. The two prospects are now sharing an infield in the majors after doing so in Las Vegas earlier this year.

"I'm still trying to eat right and eat healthy", Smith said. "The same excitement he's feeling, I'm feeling for him".

Smith went 1-for-3 with a single in his debut in Friday's 7-6 win over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Joseph added another RBI with a double in the third inning.

Amed Rosario's first major league home run was a game-winner. The shortstop had his best day as a pro, going 3-for-4 with three runs scored.

To make room for Smith, the Mets demoted right-hander Fernando Salas. With home runs from Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes, the Mets continued their bombardment of this bandbox with 54 homers over their last 24 games here.

Manager Terry Collins said he already has spoken to Smith about not changing his approach in the batter's box with the idea he has to prove something to team officials. He expected to have his mother and older brother in attendance.

Judges have been asked to dismiss the charges based on unconstitutionality in other cases, but they have declined to do so. The law treats teachers and other school employees differently from other citizens, the attorneys argue in court records.

Rosario was happy to share the accomplishment with Smith, who went 1-for-3 with a single and struggled a bit defensively before being pulled as part of a double-switch in the sixth inning. Lugo allowed three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings in his most recent outing, a no-decision against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Phillies carry an implied total of 4.72 runs into tonight's home matchup.

As Smith had a solid debut, one of the biggest positives for him this year has been his increased power, which had been a past concerns.

It had been a feel-good night to that point for the Mets, who avoided falling 12 games under.500 for the first time since the end of the 2013 season with just their second win in the last seven games. It's the longest hitting streak for the Phillies this season.

"It was more the stuff I did my swing". I mean, I'm just throwing a ball all the time.

Smith, who is listed at 6-foot and 226 pounds, said he has gained weight since shedding significant pounds in the offseason. "That has definitely helped me". He arrived at spring training down 24 pounds from the previous season, when he believes excess weight affected his performance, but 4 ½ months in Las Vegas proved hard for Smith from a dietary perspective.

"From where we stand right now, I don't know", Velasquez said.
