Freddy Galvis and Andrew Knapp picked up four consecutive hits against Syndergaard in the second as the Phillies took a 3-0 lead. Maikel Franco snapped a career-worst 0-for-22 slump in the third, ripping a double to left field to score a run as the Phillies built a 5-1 lead.

But the Mets came back. Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola threw an 0-2 curveball in the third to Neil Walker, who ripped the ball to right-center field for a three-run home run to make it a one-run game.
