Well, that lead didn't last long. After the New York Mets gave Steven Matz a two-run lead in the top of the first inning, the Philadelphia Phillies' bats responded in a big way in the bottom half. Jean Segura and Rhys Hoskins clubbed two solo moonshots to level things up early on in Citizens Bank Park.
To the deepest part of the ballpark! Hanging curveballs on 3-1 counts should be punished and Segura, the two-time All-Star, wasted no time beating up on the left-hander.
But, that's not all we have for you, Philly fans. Check out No.17 cranking dinger No.17 of 2019.
Another hanging off-speed pitch! And Hoskins nearly sent it to the second deck in the left field bleachers.
And yes, this one was a "milestone" of sorts.

It could be a long evening for Matz and the Mets if he can't formulate more movement on his breaking balls.
