Schwarber Homers as Phils bounce back from No-Hitter, Beat Mets – CBS Philly

NEW YORK (AP) – Kyle Schwarber hit a leading, two-run homer in the seventh inning on Saturday night when the Philadelphia Phillies bounced back from a no-hit by beating the New York Mets 4-1.

The Phillies, who were held hitless by five Mets-pitchers in a 3-0 loss on Friday-evening, broke through when Nick Castellanos led off the second with a single.

Mets-starter Taijuan Walker and reliever Trevor May hit the Phillies to six innings before JT Realmuto walked with one out in the seventh by Adam Ottavino (1-1).

Schwarber, who came in on Saturday with a .164 hit, followed by a homering to right midfield for a 2-1 lead. Alec Bohm walked and scored when Odubel Herrera chased Ottavino with a two-out double.

Rhys Hoskins homered early in the eighth.

Six Phillies pitchers combined on a four-hitter.

James Norwood (1-0) struckout on a perfect sixth. The Mets set up two with two outs in the eighth against Jeurys Familia before Corey Knebel came in and walked pinch-hitter JD Davis.

But Knebel caused Brandon Nimmo to ground out on the next pitch, then avoid a single by Francisco Lindor in the ninth to earn his fourth save.

Philadelphia starter Kyle Gibson made a throwing error in the fifth, which led to an unearned run.

Gibson gave up two hits and walked five with three strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.

Walker, who was activated from the injured list before the game after being sidelined since April 12 with a right shoulder bursitis, gave up two basehits and walked two with one strikeout in five innings.

A MONEY FOR SHOWALTER’S THOUGHTS

Mets manager Buck Showalter didn’t spend too much time thinking about seeing a team from his pitch a no-hitter for the second time — the first was by Jim Abbott of the New York Yankees against Cleveland on September 4, 1993.

“You don’t think too much about those things — I don’t know, do you have to have one every two years?” said Showalter. “It’s rare and it was fun and I loved (how) the players and fans got a real kick out of it. I was a little curious how they would react after that. I thought they responded perfectly.”

DO NOT CHANGE

Phillies manager Joe Girardi used the same lineup as in Friday’s no-hitter. It’s the first time this century that a team in the exact same lineup has started the game after it was a no-hit.

“Same setup? Yes, they’re ready,” Girardi said. “That’s the bottom line.”

TRAINERS ROOM

Phillies: OR Mickey Moniak (broken right hand) starts swinging and throwing lightly. Moniak was hit in the hand by a pitch on April 7 in an exhibition game.

Mets: RHP Sean Reid-Foley took off in the middle of an at bat against JT Realmuto in the eighth. Reid-Foley shot high on a 2-0 count and immediately gestured for a trainer. … JD Davis (left ankle) appeared in a game for the first time since he was hit in the left ankle by a pitch from the St. Louis Cardinals’ Genesis Cabrera on Wednesday.

NEXT ONE

Phillies: RHP Zach Eflin (1-1, 3.20 ERA) defeated the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday by six innings – his longest start since July 8 last year.

Mets: RHP Max Scherzer (3-0, 1.80 ERA) has not lost in his last 23 starts, the longest streak since Walker Buehler made 23 straight starts without a loss to the 2019-2021 Los Angeles Dodgers.
