The New York Mets blanked the Philadelphia Phillies for the second straight day, this time by a final score of 6-0 on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field. With the victory, New York won the series by taking two of the three.

Chris Bassitt started for the Mets and tossed five shutout innings while walking two and striking out five. The right-hander has not allowed an earned run in 24 consecutive innings.

Francisco Lindor put New York up 1-0 in the bottom of the first inning with an RBI single to right field. Lindor now has 82 RBIs this season, the most by a Mets shortstop in franchise history.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Mets added four runs to increase their lead to 5-0. Mark Canha and Luis Guillorme smoked back-to-back RBI singles, and James McCann capped off the inning with a two-run single.

Daniel Vogelbach drove in the sixth run of the game in the bottom of the sixth with his 15th home run of the season.

Guillorme ended up leaving the game with left groin tightness, the Mets announced. He will get an MRI on Monday.

The bullpen was excellent again as Trevor Williams, Mychal Givens, Joely Rodríguez, and Adam Ottavino had scoreless appearances. Williams has not allowed a run in 20 straight innings.

The Mets will head to Atlanta to begin a four-game series with the Braves on Monday. Carlos Carrasco will get the ball for New York. The first pitch is set for 7:20 p.m.
