Game Thread: Williams Takes Hill Against Mets

New, 209 comments
MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Trevor Williams will try to get extract some revenge against the Mets Friday night.

Williams (3-4, 4.77) gave the Mets a battle in his most recent start on July 27, but they got the better of him in the later frames, scoring three runs on two homers.

Williams has allowed a home run in seven consecutive outings, including all six of his starts since coming off the IL. He never had a stretch of more than three consecutive outings surrendering a home run before this.

The Mets will start Steven Matz (6-6, 4.32). Matz pitched his first complete game shutout against the Pirates on July 27.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m., weather permitting.
