PHILADELPHIA — Brandon Nimmo hit a two-RBI tying triple in the sixth inning and hit the go-ahead solo homer in the ninth to lead the New York Mets to a 10-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. 

Nimmo’s eighth homer of the year landed in the right field seats off reliever Brandon Workman for a 7-6 lead. It was the latest big hit against the beleaguered Phillies bullpen. 

Dominic Smith added an RBI triple and Robinson Cano hit a two-run shot in the ninth. Bryce Harper homered twice for the Phillies. 

Harper, Alex Bohm and Didi Gregorious hit three straight homers for the Phillies in the first inning. 

The Phillies will host the Blue Jays in a doubleheader on Friday.

Game One is set for 4:05 p.m.
