Cespedes provided most of the Mets' offense before the late-inning drama.

Nick Williams went 2-5 with a couple singles and drove in a run. X-rays were negative, and the team said deGrom had a bruised triceps.

"I think it's more the stuff I have done with my swing", Smith said. "I was fortunate enough that it didn't hit me in the elbow".

"Rosario is still very aggressive and he's played great", said Mets manager Terry Collins. The Mets were up 7-0 by that point anyway and he had already thrown 100 pitches so it certainly didn't hurt to take him out of the game immediately.

Pivetta was lit up for eight runs - six earned - over 2 2/3 innings Saturday in the Phillies' loss to the Rockies.

"I'm still trying to eat right and eat healthy", Smith said. "I have gained a little bit of weight back, but I was able to not get back to what it was a year ago and that was the main goal". Mets officials always insisted Smith's power would come even as he hit just 10 homers in his first three seasons in the minors. Pivetta gave up five runs in the bottom of the first inning and another three in the bottom of the third while falling to 4-7 on the season with a 5.89 ERA. Velasquez didn't return after his shaky 32-pitch first inning due to numbness in his right middle finger.

There were injuries in the past, too, such as one to his shoulder just this past May.

NY is 1-6 in Matz's last 7 starts and 8-1 in their last 9 road games against a team with a losing home record while the under is 6-1 in Matz's last 7 division starts. He has extended his career-high with 25 home runs this season and his 11th since the All-Star break.

Granderson hit a two-run drive in the ninth.

Freddy Galvis and Odubel Herrera followed with back-to-back singles.

Smith finished 1-for-3, collecting his first career hit on a single through the middle in the fourth inning before exiting as part of a double-switch in the sixth. Hoskins, who batted cleanup, is 0 for 6 since being promoted to the big leagues from the triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs on Thursday. He did play the outfield in college. Daulton's No. 10 was written in the dirt behind the catcher's box.

Amed Rosario's first major league home run was a game-winner.

"From where we stand right now, I don't know", Velasquez said. The 24-year-old right-hander will face the Mets at home next. Lagares had been on the DL since June 16 with a fractured right thumb. "With ... Bruce going to Cleveland, it's not a direct replacement".

The hamstring strain that Altherr suffered in Colorado was the second that he experienced in a month. Lugo has allowed multiple home runs in three straight starts.

First baseman/outfielder Rhys Hoskins made his debut for the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday, and New York Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith is set to be called up ahead of the Friday game.
