The Mets were all over A.J. Burnett from the get go, scoring four runs in the first inning, as they cruised to a 7-1 win over the Phillies.
The Mets would put the Phillies in an even deeper hole in the fifth inning, as Burnett surrendered a three-run home run to Travis d'Arnaud to extend the Mets' lead to 7-0.
The Phillies would finally get on the board in the eighth on an RBI double by Carlos Ruiz, but would be unable to close the gap any further in an embarrassing 7-1 loss.
