Mark Canha homers twice as Mets top Phillies in series finale

The New York Mets rallied to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies, 10-9, on Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. With the victory, the Mets won three of the four games in the series.

Mark Canha smacked two home runs, one of which was a go-ahead two-run shot in the top of the ninth inning. Canha finished with three hits and five RBIs. Brandon Nimmo, Starling Marte, Daniel Vogelbach, and Michael Perez also drove in runs. Five of the nine starters notched multi-hit games.

Mets’ top pitching prospect Jose Butto made his Major League debut and surrendered seven runs on nine hits over four innings while walking two and striking out five. Nate Fisher, who was selected to the active roster from Triple-A Syracuse before the game, also made his MLB debut and tossed three shutout innings. Trevor May and Edwin Díaz each allowed a run.

The Mets will head to the Bronx to take on the Yankees in the Subway Series on Monday. The first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
