6/26/2021 07:35:00 GMT + 00: 00 – Dominic Smith’s RBI single in the eighth inning brought the New York Mets to a 2-1 win over the Phillies in Friday’s double header opening and ruined a historic strikeout appearance by Aaron Nola from Philadelphia.
The Mets, who had lost a 0-1 defeat in seventh place before Francisco Lindor’s RBI single.
The rally cost Nola victory on a historic day for the right turn. He joined Tom Seaver’s major league record by hitting 10 straight bats and later provided the Phillies’ only RBI with a double in the fifth inning.
After the first two New York Batters hit base, Nola hit the next 10 hitters on 46 pitches to tie the April 22, 1970 record when Seaver beat the last 10 San Diego Padres Batters he faced in a Mets 2 -1 faced victory.
