The New York Mets had their way with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2022, going 14-5 against them in their 19 games against each other.
While the Phillies have been a solid ballclub this season, the Mets have been that much better.
Yesterday, they showed why, rallying from a large deficit once again to shock the Philly faithful at Citizens Bank Park, and beating them by a final of 10-9.
It’s also worth noting Mark Canha‘s epic bat flip.
That helped the Mets seal the deal against the Phillies.
In fact, with their dramatic comeback win yesterday, New York has tied its all-time high for wins against the Phillies in a single season.

Mets Complete Philly Dominance
Sometimes, a team can find an opponent that they can just flat out dominate.
For the Mets, the Phillies were that unlucky team.
Twice, the Mets have rallied from large deficits to win games in Philadelphia this year.
They managed to do it back in April, and they did it again yesterday to secure a jaw-dropping victory.
The Mets clearly had their way against one of their hated rivals this season.
The Phillies just did not have an answer for the Mets this season.
The season series is over, and it was completely dominated by the Mets.
New York won the opener of the weekend series on Friday and split the doubleheader on Saturday before Sunday’s comeback.
The Mets continue to win ballgames and dominate everybody else in the National League East division.
At this point, they’ve buried the Phillies, leading them by 12 games.
Now, they’ll have to take care of the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves, who trail them by just four games in the division.
