Steven Matz just did not have it Tuesday night.
The Mets southpaw was roughed up for eight runs in the first inning and was taken out of the game before recording an out in a 14-3 loss to the Phillies.
Amed Rosario committed two errors behind Matz, which included allowing leadoff batter Andrew McCutchen on base to jump-start the inning.
Matz then allowed a double, hit batter, two-RBI double before Scott Kingery blasted a three-run home run.
After a walk and another error by Rosario, Maikel Franco hit a three-run home run to make it 8-0 and end Matz's night.
"Just location of pitches," Matz said after the game. "I know I can come out of it. It's not going to define me or the season. Just wash it and move forward."
Matz's final line was zero innings, four hits, eight runs -- six earned -- a walk and hit batter.
It was the first time a Mets starter went 0+ innings since Jeremy Hefner in 2012.
"We didn't make a few plays, first and foremost," manager Mickey Callaway said after the game. "When he needed to make a big pitch he just couldn't. Rought night. These happen from time to time. He'll regroup, come back out next time and get after it."
Drew Gagnon followed Matz in relief and the Phillies tacked on two more runs after Jeff McNeil missed a fly ball at the wall from J.T. Realmuto to make it 10-0.
