Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports Kilome gives the Mets an arm, but Guillorme has been very good this year. The Mets have activated right-handed pitcher Franklyn Kilome from the injured list and optioned infielder Luis Guillorme to the team’s alternate training site in Brooklyn.
The Mets did enough in their series with the Phillies, winning two of three games, to remain alive in the chase for the playoffs. With 10 games remaining, they are 23-27 and are one of eight teams fighting for the four-remaining spots in the postseason.
Chris McShane The Mets didn’t get many big leaguers out of the 2014 draft, but at least they got Michael Conforto. Coming off of a 2013 season in which the Mets went 74-88 and finished third in the NL East, the Mets entered the 2014 draft with the tenth overall selection in the draft.
Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports The Mets blew an early lead but came back to beat the Phillies in dramatic fashion. If you were told ahead of the Mets’ three-game series in Philadelphia that the team would win two out of three games, you probably would have picked the two started by Jacob deGrom and Seth Lugo.
The final game of the series for the New York Mets against the Philadelphia Phillies was all about surviving and advancing to the next game.

Brandon Nimmo tied the game with a two-run triple in the sixth inning and he belted a leadoff homer in the ninth to put the Mets ahead and they hung on through a bases-loaded situation in the bottom of the ninth to escape with a 10-6 win Thursday night in Philadelphia.

Wednesday night’s matchup between the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies featured a matchup of two longtime teammates. Jacob deGrom and Zack Wheeler faced each other for the first time, but Wheeler lasted a lot longer than back-to-back Cy Young winner did.
As the New York Mets enjoy their last off day of the season their postseason outlook is bleak. After dropping two of three to the Toronto Blue Jays over the weekend, the Mets are 21-26 and have just a 27.5 percent chance of reaching the playoffs.
