• The Phillies struck out 15 times and did not walk once Thursday. Elias Sports Bureau said it was the fourth time in Mets history they recorded 15 or more strikeouts in a game without issuing a walk. The first three games were 16-strikeout complete games: Dwight Gooden in consecutive starts (Sept. 12, 1984, vs. the Pirates, and Sept. 17 vs. the Phillies) and Sid Fernandez (July 14, 1989, vs. the Braves).
