Instead, they just smacked the Phillies around for nine innings, winning in dominating fashion, 11-2.
New York would get on the board in the second on a Lucas Duda RBI double and tack on four more in the top of the sixth to break the game wide open.
For good measure, the Mets would score six more runs in the ninth inning, including a grand slam by Wilmer Flores, as they cruised to an 11-2 win over the Phillies.
After a disappointing home stand, the Phillies will now head to Washington, where David Buchanan will take the mound against Jordan Zimmerman.
