Mets score team-record 24 runs in win vs. Philly

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

The Mets are battering the Phillies 22-4 in the first game of their doubleheader, so we've got another position player on the mound. Philly has Roman Quinn out there and it's not going well -- six runs allowed so far. More pertinent are the on-going struggles of the Phillies' defense. Four errors have led to 11 unearned runs. According to the baseball-reference.com play index, that's the most unearned runs Philadelphia has allowed in a game since 1922.
