Somehow the Phillies are managing to play a worse game than Monday. Todd Frazier hits his fifth career grand slam to give the Mets an 8-0 lead in the fifth inning. Zack Wheeler has 11 K's through five. They've made two errors. Mets fans are happy at Citi Field.

Have a day, Zack Wheeler. After earlier hitting a two-run double on a first-pitch slider, he now hits a first-pitch fastball from Zach Eflin for a home run for his first career home run. Gabe Kapler looks on from the dugout in disbelief.

Brandon Nimmo left tonight's game as a precaution with a left oblique twinge.

Zack Wheeler helps himself out with a two-out, two-run double down the right-field line and then scores the Mets' third run of the inning when Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernandez lets Brandon Nimmo's routine grounder scoot under his legs.

One day after tweaking his left ankle (but staying in the game), Clint Frazier is not in the Yankees' lineup. Tyler Wade will be playing for him in LF, as Brett Gardner shifts down from his customary lead-off perch: 3B LeMahieu DH Voit CF Gardner SS Torres 1B Ford RF Tauchman C Romine 2B Estrada LF Wade SP Germán

Pete Alonso working on his defense with an extra small first baseman's glove. He's been getting replaced on defense late in games, although his defensive metrics so far have actually been OK (0 Defensive Runs Saved).

Three batters after Bryce Harper was called on a strikes on a pitch above the belt, Gabe Kapler storms out of the dugout to have some strong words with home plate umpire Mark Carlson and then Bryce Harper rushes out and Kapler has to push him away form Carlson. Harper has apparently been ejected.

Bryce Harper makes a sliding/half-diving catch to take away a potential base hit from Juan Lagares in the second inning. Not that difficult of a play, but the slide/dive was kind of a big deal: Last year, Harper dove just one time and slid four times. He and Nicholas Castellanos were the only regular outfielders not to dive more than once.
