  • Mets Set Franchise Record With 24 Runs In Win

    Mets set franchise record with 24 runs behind Jose Bautista's 7 RBIs

    PHILADELPHIA -- The New York Mets didn't care who was on the mound. They kept swinging and scoring.

    Jose Bautista hit a grand slam and had a career-high seven RBIs, and the Mets set a franchise record for runs, forcing the Philadelphia Phillies to use two position players for the final three innings of a 24-4 New York victory in the first game of a doubleheader Thursday.

    Corey Oswalt (2-2) gave up four solo homers in six innings, Amed Rosario hit a leadoff homer and had three RBIs, and the Mets took advantage of four errors to score 11 unearned runs.

    Even reliever Jerry Blevins got his first career hit, a line-drive RBI single off infielder Scott Kingery.

    Outfielder Roman Quinn gave up a homer to Michael Conforto on his second pitch -- a 79 mph fastball. He got five outs, gave up seven runs and threw 42 pitches. Kingery went the final 1 1/3 innings and gave up two runs.
