The Mets’ offense came alive, scoring in three different innings and putting up crooked numbers in two of them, which led to a 7-2 win over the Phillies in the team’s home opener on Friday afternoon.
- New York pounded out nine hits, with Michael Conforto and Neil Walker contributing two apiece. Conforto had 3 RBIs and Walker scored twice and drove in two.
- Jacob deGrom again didn’t have peak 2015 velocity but it’s hard to argue with the results. He notched 6 IP, 1 ER, 0 BB and 6 Ks. But it wasn’t all roses, as he left the game early with a right lat strain.
- Jim Henderson looked good again, as he struck out two of the three batters he faced.
- Hansel Robles and Antonio Bastardo made their season debuts. Robles allowed an unearned run and needed Jerry Blevins to come in and bail him out. Bastardo gave up a hit but struck out two batters.
