Brown Lead Phillies Past Mets

Flushing, NY (Sports Network) – Domonic Brown’s single in the ninth inning plated the go-ahead run and started the decisive rally, as the Phillies edged the Mets, 6-4, in the opener of a three-game series.

With two men on and one away in a tie game, Brown smacked a grounder toward first base. The Mets’ Daniel Murphy failed to get in front of the ball, trying to field it from the side. But the ball stayed down, scooting into the outfield as Carlos Ruiz scored.

That opened the floodgates: Jimmy Rollins followed with a sacrifice fly, and Placido Polanco tacked on an RBI infield single later in the inning. The cushion helped Philadelphia withstand a New York rally in the bottom half and hold on for a third consecutive win.

The Phillies scored all the runs against Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez (1-1), who carried a 19 2/3-inning scoreless streak into Friday’s game. It was the longest active streak in the majors.
