Final Score: Mets 7, Phillies 1—Burnett burned

The Mets took it to the Phillies in the series opener.

Mike Stobe

The Mets opened a three-game series with the lowly Phillies by beating them 7-1 at Citi Field. Bartolo Colon was great, allowing just one run in seven-and-two-thirds innings of work, and the Mets had no problem scoring runs against Philadelphia starter A.J. Burnett.

The Mets scored four runs in the first, starting with a Daniel Murphy double that plated Curtis Granderson. Lucas Duda singled in Murphy, and Juan Lagares drove in the third and fourth runs of the night with a double. And in the fifth inning, Travis d’Arnaud—who had a great game—hit a three-run shot to put the Mets up 7-0.

The Phillies scored one against Colon in the eighth and threatened a bit in the ninth inning, but Dana Eveland and Vic Black kept them from scoring in the final inning of the win.
