Bruce powers Mets past Phillies 5-4 to stop 4-game slide

Mets 5 things Zach Eflin's turn to try to quiet the Mets

It was a wish list that was the epitome of simplicity.

"Certainly one of the things we talked about in spring training was a year ago and he said, 'Hey, it's the worst month I've ever had in my career, '" Mets manager Terry Collins said. They were added to his middle and pointer fingers and said he felt fine while throwing with them.

Zach Eflin was officially recalled by the Phillies from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Tuesday afternoon and he'll get the start as Philadelphia begins a three-game series in NY. No way, Bruce claimed.

In addition to Familia's return, tonight sees Noah Syndergaard take on Aaron Nola at 7:10 in Queens.

"I don't believe in must-win games in April, but it was good to get this one tonight", Bruce said. "Carried us offensively. Certainly something to maybe get us started". "Just look to build off it. This game can get you". Home runs. Check. Length from the starter. Collins said he'd like to get Familia into a game right away, but the reliever might be eased back in with a setup role at first. Franco once again went hitless, going 0-4, making him hitless in his last 21 at-bats. Lucas Duda and Travis d'Arnaud were both injured in the top of the fifth inning, and while both are considered day to day at this point, it wasn't great news for the Mets.

With Wednesday night's pair of home runs, Bruce has now hit six on the season - four of which have given the Mets the lead. NY responded in the bottom half, scoring twice on Jay Bruce's RBI single and a run-scoring wild pitch.

Since Thursday night's marathon game in Miami, each Met game has looked shockingly alike: close until late, when a poor managerial decision, bullpen arm, or over-the-hill third baseman makes an error that costs the team a heartbreaker.

Russia Vetoes UNSC Condemnation of Assad's Chemical Attack
Peskov also said Putin had given Tillerson his views on the situation in Syria, and how it was likely to develop. Syria and Russian Federation have vehemently denied the regime carried out the attack.

The bullpen was good, with Jerry Blevins getting two big outs before letting his second inherited runner of the year score, before Hansel Robles came in for the third out of the eighth inning.

"The first one was a changeup, kind of left over the middle of the plate", Bruce said. I just lost the ball. I know [Ramos] is really a two-pitch guy.

The Mets were limited to one hit over five innings.

Vince Velasquez turned in his best start of the season, allowing three runs over six innings. That's because the just-called-up pitcher was initiated by a two-run Mets first inning.

The Mets tried to generate some offense early.

Cameron Rupp secured a sac fly in the 10th for what proved to be the winning run. "Like I said, individually, I don't really take too much time to think about what I'm doing or my success or anything during the season". "He said, 'I'm the player you traded for.' And he is".

And did. But ultimately, it didn't matter because Collins saw what he wanted: more homers.
