The Mets didn't waste much time getting on the scoreboard in Monday's series-opener against the Phillies.
Michael Conforto hit an RBI double and Todd Frazier followed with an RBI single in the top of the first inning to give the Mets an early 2-0 lead.
With two outs and Pete Alonso on first base, Conforto ripped a Zach Eflin fastball into the right-center field gap to put the Mets on the board. Frazier then lined a 2-2 slider into right field to drive in Conforto and make it 2-0.
It didn't stay 2-0 for long. Steven Matz allowed two solo homers in a three-run first inning, and Bryce Harper added an RBI double in the second.
Conforto tied the game back up at 5 in the fifth innning with an opposite field solo home run.
Amed Rosario then put the Mets ahead with an RBI sac fly later in the inning but the 6-5 lead was short-lived as the Phillies scored three in the bottom of the fifth.
