The Phillies exploded off Mets starter Taijuan Walker for four runs in the first inning.
Bryce Harper had an RBI double, J.T. Realmuto and Jean Segura added RBI singles and Nick Castellanos had a run-scoring groundout. The Phillies were helped by a costly error by shortstop Lindor on Alec Bohm’s grounder early in the inning.
The Phillies increased the lead to 7-0 in the fourth on back-to-back homers by Harper and Castellanos.
