Mets' Matz allows 8 runs without recording out

Mets starter Steven Matz faced eight Phillies batters in the first inning, and they all scored. Matz allowed eight runs, including two homers, without recording an out.

The Mets beat the Phillies 7-6 on a cold, windy night in Philadelphia. It was brutal game aside from the 24-mph winds, lasting 4 hours, 29 minutes and featuring 14 walks and 380 pitches. The big takeway: Aaron Nola and Noah Syndergaard both allowed five runs -- something neither did last year in 58 combined starts. Nola now has a 7.45 in four outings and Syndergaard is at 5.63.

Trying to protect a one-run lead, Jeurys Familia struggles for the Mets and loads the bases in the bottom of the eighth with two outs. Mickey Callaway then goes to the bullpen, but instead of bringing in Edwin Diaz for a four-out save, he brings in Robert Gsellman, who promptly walks Jean Segura on four pitches. Bryce Harper then pops up the first pitch and it's tied going to the ninth.

Maikel Franco continues to thrive in the eighth spot in the Phillies lineup, crushing a two-run homer 429 feet into the second deck in left field off Noah Syndergaard, making it a 5-5 game in the fourth inning. Syndergaard didn't allow five runs in a game all of 2018. So much for the anticipated pitching duel with Aaron Nola.
