Young players in spotlight as Phillies host Mets

It had been a feel-good night to that point for the Mets, who avoided falling 12 games under.500 for the first time since the end of the 2013 season with just their second win in the last seven games.

The Philadelphia Phillies will try ot get on the board with a win after their loss in game two on Friday.

Rosario, 21, hit a 95 miles per hour fastball 400 feet into the right-field stands. It capped a breakout game for the 21-year-old shortstop, who entered with a.161 average through his first nine games and was in a 1-for-16 slump.

The Phillies trailed 6-5 in the bottom of the eighth inning when Philadelphia's Cesar Hernandez drove an 84 mpg changeup from Mets reliever Jerry Blevins 398 feet into the left-field stands to tie the game. It was Hernandez's career-best seventh homer of the season.

Edubray Ramos came on and got the final two outs of the eighth. Lugo allowed three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings in his most recent outing, a no-decision against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. It was the 150th homer of Cespedes' career. He also got his first hit, a ground ball up the middle into shallow center field for a single in the fourth inning.

NY entered Thursday averaging 2.4 runs in the losses while going 3-10 over its previous 13 contests, but the Mets belted four home runs and matched their offensive output from the last five games combined in a 10-0 rout in the opener.

It was the third time in 68 games this season that Cespedes had at least four RBIs. He allowed five earned run, three in the first inning, on eight hits and four walks. In his past five starts, Pivetta has an 8.64 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP. Freddy Galvis added a double of his own while Jorge Alfaro and starting pitcher Nick Pivetta chipped in base hits in the losing effort. He gave up a double to Yoenis Céspedes and walked Michael Conforto before Wilmer Flores hit a three-run blast. Lugo needed 81 pitches to get through the first three innings, but settled down a bit to get into the sixth. He struck out a career high eight.

NOTES: Mets 1B Dominic Smith made his major league debut.
