NOLA ALMOST PERFECT, STOTT STRIKES AGAIN, PHILS 30TH WIN, WATCH!

By Sam Bush

Aaron Nola shut down the Mets in a 4-0 victory, taking a perfect game into the sixth, when Tyrone Taylor singled to left field leading off the inning.

Nola would allow three more hits before finishing his first complete game of the season, and the sixth of his career.

Before the Taylor single, Nola was using all five of his pitches — knuckle curve, four seamer, cutter, sinker and changeup – and getting his share of strikeouts and ground-ball outs.

But his best inning came in the seventh. He threw only three pitches. After Starling Marte led off with a single on the first pitch, Francisco Lindor followed and lined out on the first pitch to second baseman Kody Clemens. Up next, Pete Alonso swung at the first pitch and hit into a double play to end the threat.
