Jake Arrieta Struggles As Phillies’ Winning Streak Against Mets Ends

"If Frazier's not happy about it, he can come see me and I'll put a dent in his skull", the Philadelphia Phillies pitcher said. Nido lined a three-run double to right-center that gave NY a 6-4 lead and chased Arrieta, who also plunked rookie star Pete Alonso on his elbow guard in the first. Now, it looks like the Phillies will have the righty undergo further tests before they determine whether or not he can continue pitching this season, a process that may ultimately result in a season-ending surgical procedure.

Hoskins was hit in the left thigh by a pitch from reliever Wilmer Font in the seventh.

Longtime rivals, the Mets and Phillies had a testy series in April, and ny reliever Jacob Rhame was suspended two games and fined for sailing two fastballs over the head of Rhys Hoskins, a day after two Mets got plunked. Two innings later, Hoskins responded with a home run.

Challenged by Jake Arrieta after the Mets' come-from-behind win the night before, Frazier said the Phillies' right-hander can "say what he wants". Although both Nola (7 IP, 1 hit, no runs, 1 walk, 10 Ks) and Wheeler (6 IP, 2 hits, 1 run, 2 walks, 7 Ks) were excellent, neither figured in the decision.

Hoskins got his revenge with a homer off Rhame and a very slow trot around the bases.

Hoskins hit an RBI double, Realmuto followed with a two-run double and Bruce had an RBI single in the first. Rhame is now in the minors.

Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein charged with sex trafficking
He was jailed for a bail hearing next Monday, when prosecutors plan to argue that the rich world traveler might flee if released. Federal prosecutors including Acosta reached a plea deal with Epstein that has since come under scrutiny as being too lenient.

The same night, the Post reported that Van Wagenen called down to the dugout and ordered deGrom be removed from a game - a game which the Mets lost in 11 innings after the bullpen blew a 5-1 lead in the eighth. "If a situation arises, then we handle it".

Nola (8-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings.

"Physically, I'm not in a great spot", Arrieta said afterward, per ESPN. "But we'll see. We'll see in the next couple of days".

McNeil is 13 for 20 (.650) against Arrieta.

Asked before the game if Díaz is still the team's closer, Callaway said: "Going into today, he is". Conforto had an early RBI double.

The All-Star break is not quite here yet, but the New York Mets have had enough drama to fill numerous seasons, and that was before their general manager reportedly threw a chair during a heated meeting with the coaching staff. NY has won his last five starts at home.
