Offensive Struggles Add Up for Phillies

PBR- The Phillies dropped their second straight game to the Mets this afternoon by a score of 6-0. The bats fell silent for the Phils as they left five runners on base and were 0 for 2 with runners in scoring position. The Mets' southpaw Jon Niese threw six and two thirds inning of shut out ball, giving up only five hits.

Right fielder Lucas Duda drove in two runs on two hits and scored a run for Mets, who lit up Phillies starter Vance Worley. Worley lasted six innings and gave up four runs on eight hits. Third baseman David Wright collected three hits for New York.

Philadelphia struggled to find offense throughout the game, while New York found offense seemingly with ease. Even with leaving eight men on base, the Mets still plated five runs.

Up next for the Phillies is the final game of their three game set against the Mets. Cole Hamels will be on the mound looking for his for his first win of the year, and hoping to prevent the Phillies from getting swept by the Mets
