NEW YORK — Back on the mound two days after an abbreviated start, Marcus Stroman tossed six spotless innings and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 for a doubleheader sweep. 

Brandon Nimmo had three hits and three RBIs from the leadoff spot. Jonathan Villar followed up his game-winning single in the opener with a run-scoring double, and Stroman outpitched Phillies ace Aaron Nola.

In the first game, Pete Alonso and Villar hit RBI singles in the eighth to give New York a 4-3 victory in extra innings. Dominic Smith socked an early two-run homer for the Mets. 

Both games of the single-admission twin bill, booked to make up Monday night’s rainout at Citi Field, were scheduled for seven innings.

The teams will face off again tonight at 7:10 p.m.
