Tylor Megill, bullpen chokes Phillies as Mets slides

PHILADELPHIA — Tylor Megill dazzled on opening night, but if he wanted to make his mark on the streets, this was his chance to face a big-boy cast at a bandboxing stadium.

He left the Mets Tuesday night with a nod of approval.

With his improved heat, the right-hander put the Phillies into the sixth inning and led a 2-0 win at Citizens Bank Park that snapped the Mets’ two-game sled.

Megill, who is on the rotation because Jacob deGrom is out with a stress reaction on his right shoulder blade, led his scoreless streak to 10 ¹/₃ innings to start the season. He threw five scoreless innings on opening night in Washington, followed by another 5 ¹/₃ in this gem.

The right-hander hit a top speed of 98.9 mph with a four-seam fastball in the first inning and averaged 96.7 mph with the pitch overall, sharing a lineup with Kyle Schwarber, JT Realmuto, Bryce Harper and Nick Castellanos muzzled. Overall, Megill allowed three hits and knocked out five. He has yet to batter this season.

After two straight games in which the bullpen squandered the lead, the Mets got the relief they needed when Chasen Shreve, Drew Smith and Edwin Diaz combined in 3²/₃ innings scoreless to defend the lead. Smith was particularly impressive with 1²/₃ innings scoreless and three strikeouts as he brought the ball to Diaz for his first save.

Shreve grabbed the final two outs in the sixth, knocking out Schwarber and beating Realmuto after Megill allowed Johan Camargo a leadoff single and Simon Muzziotti sacrificed him in second place.

Francisco Lindor’s RBI single in the eighth game gave the Mets an insurance run after Starling Marte stole second base in the inning. The Phillies had failed to turn a double on Martes Grounder when Bryson Stott caught the throw at an awkward angle for the second.

Brandon Nimmo hammered a 2-1 switch from Zack Wheeler for a two-out homer in the fifth that spawned the game’s first run. Wheeler was removed after the homer, ended after 4 ²/₃ innings in which he conceded two hits, hit two batsmen and walked one. The right-hander threw only 65 throws.

Wheeler dropped Marte and Pete Alonso in the first inning and gave the Mets seven hit batters in six games, leading the major leagues. A walk to Eduardo Escobar invited the bases in, but Robinson Cano struck to end the threat.
