Phils handle Mets, as Mets HBP Phils to victory

But, every now and again, this game never ceases to surprise. What looked bleak turned into a victory for the Phillies as they skated away with a win. Phils went ahead with the HBP on Trea Turner, watch it below from MLB Film Room:

And it wasn’t just an ordinary win, it was a series win over the Mets, and the last time that happened was some time ago, believe it or not, a series hasn’t been won against the Mets prior to Sunday since September 17-19 2021. That’s a long time ago! Mets manager, Buck Showalter got ejected in yesterday’s Mets loss.
