Final Score: Mets 16, Phillies 7—Home runs for all

The Mets trailed early but hit eight home runs to come back and win by a wide margin.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Jacob deGrom had his worst major league start this evening in Philadelphia, but it didn't matter at all in the end. The Mets hit eight home runs, the first of which was an bomb off the bat of David Wright in his first at-bat back from the disabled list.

The Mets trailed 7-2 at one point but rattled off a string of fourteen unanswered runs. Wilmer Flores hit two home runs, and the other home runs were hit by Juan Lagares, Travis d'Arnaud, Michael Cuddyer, Daniel Murhy, and Yoenis Cespedes. And after deGrom struggled—he gave up all of the Phillies' runs—Sean Gilmartin pitched in long relief and was excellent for three-and-one-third innings before turning things over to Hansel Robles, Eric O'Flaherty, and Carlos Torres, who didn't allow any runs, either.
