NEW YORK (AP)-- Maikel Franco homered and doubled while breaking the longest hitless streak of his big league career, and the Philadelphia Phillies capitalized on an error by untested first baseman Jay Bruce to beat the short-handed New York Mets 6-4 Thursday night.

Philadelphia took a 3-0 lead in the second, helped by Bruce's misplay.

After Tommy Joseph grounded an RBI double just past the diving Bruce, Freddy Galvis hit a grounder wide of first base.

Bruce fielded it cleanly, then hesitated making an underhanded throw. Instead of flipping the ball to either Syndergaard or second baseman Neil Walker covering the bag, he tossed it between them and it rolled away. After the inning, Mets manager Terry Collins talked with Bruce in the dugout.

This was the 1,285th game in the majors for Bruce, normally an outfielder. But it was only his fourth time at first base and first since 2014 with Cincinnati - and his third error at the position. The Mets put him there because of their injuries.

Bruce showed his inexperience at the spot even before the first pitch. While throwing grounders to his infielders before the top of the first, he twice stopped when he wasn't sure who got the next one.
