Mets Vs. Phillies Final Score: New York Wins Blow Out, 11-1, Tuesday

The New York Mets won the opening game of their three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies, 11-1, on Tuesday night at Citi Field. Jonathon Niese (7-3) pitched very well, giving up just one earned run off three hits with two walks and three strikeouts in eight innings. Phillies starter Vance Worley (4-5) did not, giving up six earned runs and 10 hits with three strikeouts in just four innings on the mound.

Carlos Ruiz briefly tied the game, 1-1, with a solo home run to left center in the second inning. Otherwise, the Mets provided all of the fireworks offensively.

Daniel Murphy tied a career high with four hits in five at-bats in his second four-hit game of the year. Ruben Tejada and Josh Thole had three hits each. Murphy batted in four runs, and would have had a fifth if Tejada had beaten the throw at home off Murphy's double in the second. Tejada batted in one run in the fourth, and ran in two more.

David Wright hit a three-run home run off a 3-2 pitch with two outs in the sixth inning off Phillies reliever Brian Sanches. The blast to center, Wright's 10th of the season, scored Niese and Tejada. Niese had a nice night at the plate as well, going 1-for-1 with a walk and a two-RBI single in the second.

Game 2 of the series is set for 1:10 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Chris Young (2-1, 3.30 ERA) will take on the Phillies' Cliff Lee (0-5, 4.31) on the mound.
