2017mfc Record Breaker & Season Highlight cards:>>>> 3 YoBOMBS!

The Mets took it to the Phillies in brutal fashion as they pummeled Citizen Bank Ballpark with a barrage of hits, extra base hits, & home runs! When it was all over New York had hammered out a 14-4 victory and the Phils were totally demoralized.

The Mets launched seven homers and scored 14 runs on 20 hits. Yo had three gophers. The Dude had two. Cabrera, d'Arnaud, one each. Cabrera went 4-for-6, scored three runs and finished only a triple short of the cycle. Duda went 4-for-6, capping his night with a ninth-inning solo shot.

 Cespedes crushed a three-run home run 411 feet to center field in the first inning, smashed a laser 428 feet down the left-field line in the fourth (back-to-back with Asdrubal Cabrera) and smoked a towering shot 382 feet to left in the fifth. Statcast™ listed their exit velocities at 105.2 mph, 109.3 mph and 108.3 mph, respectively. He doubled in the seventh to finish 4-for-6 with five RBIs.

"Can you imagine?" Cespedes said. "I think any baseball player that hit three home runs would be having a lot of fun. It wasn't just fun for me, though. It was really great to see the whole team getting hits out there and having fun."

The Phillies had little luck against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey, who allowed five hits, two runs, one walk and struck out six in 5 2/3 innings, before he left with tightness in his left hamstring. Harvey said after the game that the tightness was nothing serious and he expects to make his next start Sunday in Miami.

 Lucas Duda put the exclamation point on the rout in the sixth, when he hit a home run over the batter's eye in center field. It traveled a projected 448 feet, making it the fourth-longest homer in baseball this season, according to Statcast™. Duda hit a solo shot in the ninth for the Mets' seventh home run.

"It looked like a driving range out there the way he was hitting the ball," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

The Mets have hit seven home runs in a game three times in their history. All three have come against the Phillies, including an eight-homer barrage on Aug. 24, 2015. That game also marked the only other time the Mets have collected 14 or more extra-base hits.

A Met has hit three home runs in a game 13 times, the last two courtesy of Yoenis Cespedes.
