    mph fastballs toward home plate. One of these days, he figured one might come
    back his way.The New York Mets star pitcher is feeling lucky his run-in with a
    hard line drive Saturday didn’t turn out worse.Syndergaard left the game after
    he was hit by Cesar Hernandez’s liner in the seventh inning. Still, he managed
    to slow the Philadelphia Phillies‘ playoff run despite allowing a career-worst
    12 hits and five walks in the Mets’ 10-5 victory.“That was really the one right
    there Miguel
    Andujar Jersey
    ,” Syndergaard said, adding that “most of them have been
    pretty softly hit or on the ground. But it comes with the territory of playing
    baseball and being a pitcher.”Syndergaard (11-3) tried to brace himself but was
    hit on the right lower rib cage when Hernandez lined a 98 mph pitch. Syndergaard
    picked up the ball but held onto it. The Mets said X-rays were negative.The ball
    came off Hernandez’s bat at 103.7 mph.“When it happened, I saw my life flash
    before my eyes a little bit, and at that point I just assumed I was done,”
    Syndergaard said.He matched his career high for walks and allowed four runs in 6
    2/3 innings.Mets rookie second baseman Jeff McNeil, who has reached base safely
    in his last 21 starts, had three hits, including a triple. His four triples
    since Aug. 18 lead the league.“He’s added another dimension to the way our
    lineup looks,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said.“He has a little bit of
    different skill set than some other guys. He’s able to spray the ball around the
    field. He’s great left on left.”Zach Eflin (9-7) gave up six runs, four hits and
    three walks in three
    innings Tim Tebow
    , dropping to 0-3 in his last four starts.He struggled after
    striking out two to retire the Mets in order in the first inning.“I think I just
    got away from my fastball after that,” Eflin said. “Was really relying on other
    pitches I shouldn’t have been relying on when my fastball was as good as it was
    in the first inning.”Philadelphia, which led the NL East before play Aug. 12,
    fell 3 1/2 games behind first-place Atlanta and also trails in the NL wild-card
    race. The Phillies have lost 16 of their last 25. Atlanta beat Arizona 5-4 in 10
    innings.“This certainly was not our night but I thought there were some real
    positive things,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said.Tomas Nido hit a three-run
    double in the second inning and Todd Frazier had a three-run homer in the third.
    Jay Bruce made it 7-0 with an RBI single in the fourth and Michael Conforto
    added his 21st homer as the Mets won for the fifth time in their last seven
    games.Rhys Hoskins led off the sixth with his 29th homer and Hernandez singled
    in a run later in the inning, the first of his three RBIs.PREVIOUS
    HIGHSSyndergaard also walked five against Washington on July 22, 2015. His gave
    up 10 hits against San Diego and San Francisco in 2015 and also vs. Atlanta this
    May.MAKING MOVESPhillies: INF Mitch Walding was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh
    Valley.Mets: C Jose Lobaton’s contract was selected from Triple-A Las Vegas. RHP
    Bobby Wahl was placed on the 60-day DL to clear a spot on the 40-man
    roster.TRAINER’S ROOMMets: 3B David Wright played in a simulated game and is
    slated for another Tuesday. He then will speak to chief operating officer Jeff
    Wilpon to review his status. … LF Dominic Smith was pulled from the game prior
    to the sixth inning due to a tight left groin. Callaway said Smith tweaked his
    groin while stretching out to make a play at first base on Friday night.UP
