Recap: NY Mets vs. Philadelphia

Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Bartolo Colon pitched into the eighth inning and Travis d'Arnaud hit a three-run home run as the New York Mets thumped the Philadelphia Phillies, 7-1, in the opener of a three-game series.

Colon (10-8) gave up 10 hits and a run in 7 2/3 innings, striking out six while walking one to win his second straight start.

Juan Lagares drove in two, while Lucas Duda scored twice for the Mets, who have won five of their last seven.

Carlos Ruiz was the lone bright spot for the Phillies as he went 4-for-4 with an RBI as the team fell for the sixth time in their past nine games. A.J. Burnett (6-10) was banged up for all seven runs on eight hits in five innings of work.

The Mets jumped all over Burnett in the first inning and it got started with a walk from Curtis Granderson and he scored when Daniel Murphy followed with a double. Two batters later, Duda scored Murphy. Following a double from d'Arnaud that put men on second and third, Lagares doubled home both runners for a 4-0 lead.

The Phillies had baserunners in each of the first four innings, including leaving men at the corners in the third, but were unable to push any across.

In the fifth, Duda walked with two outs and Chris Young followed with a single before d'Arnaud launched a pitch over the left field wall for a 7-0 lead.

The Phillies left the bases loaded in the sixth as Cody Asche struck out to end the frame.

Ruiz's RBI double in the eighth inning broke up Colon's shutout attempt.
