The New York Mets broke a franchise record on Thursday night with 24 runs in Philadelphia against the Phillies.

In the very same season that brought on the organization’s worst loss of all-time—a 25-4 thrashing at the hands of the Washington Nationals—the New York Mets have set a new runs scored record.

On Thursday night, the Metsies slapped the Philadelphia Phillies to the tune of 24-4 in Game 1 of the doubleheader.


Interestingly enough, the Phils held a 2-1 lead after two innings, but a 10-run fifth inning blew the doors off the game.

Jose Bautista led the way after coming in for an injured Brandon Nimmo who left after he was hit by a pitch on the knuckle. Bautista finished 3-for-4 with a grand slam in the fifth inning and seven total runs batted in.

Amed Rosario finished 4-for-7 with a leadoff home run and three RBI.

Austin Jackson, Wilmer Flores and Michael Conforto each finished with three hits apiece. Conforto picked up 17th home run of the season in the seventh inning off position player Roman Quinn.

Much like the Nats 25-run outburst against the Mets, this one included position players on the mound.

For Philly, four solo home runs were had against Mets starter Corey Oswalt. Young Oswalt managed to collect his second win of the season by relenting four runs (on those four solo homers) on nine hits and a walk while striking out two in six innings of work.

Game 2

Game 2 featured a Rhys Hopkins three-run home run in the first inning off Steven Matz and ultimately, a 9-6 Philly victory.

Matz was hit hard, giving up six runs in just two innings of work. Conforto remained hot by finishing 3-for-5 with four RBI.
