PHILADELPHIA – A historic night of baseball occurred Monday night at Citizens Bank Park as the New York Mets became the first team in major league history to have each of their No. 1- No. 7 hitters all homer in a game.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Mets hit eight home runs (including a pair by Wilmer Flores) and totaled 15 extra-base hits, both franchise records, in their 16-7 triumph over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
Ten different players homered in Monday’s game (seven Mets and three Phillies), setting a new major-league record. The previous high was nine different players (both teams combined), done 24 times.
The Mets’ 15 extra-base hits on Monday are tied for the second most in a game in the modern era (since 1900).
