Mets offense silenced in series-opening loss to Phillies

Nothing seems to click at the same time for the New York Mets (34-41) and that was the case again on Friday in a 5-1 series-opening loss to the Philadelphia Phillies (39-36) at Citizens Bank Park.

On a night when the pitching was decent, the offense was completely silent aside from Brandon Nimmo’s eighth home run. New York had just three total hits and went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

Kodai Senga allowed four runs (two earned) over 5 1/3 innings while fanning six.

Max Scherzer will take the ball in the middle game of this three-game series on Saturday at 4:05 as the Mets look to snap a three-game skid.
