Mets Win, Sweep Phillies
The New York Mets completed a sweep of the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, moving to 18-13 on the season as they came from behind for the third straight night in a 10-6 win on Wednesday night.
David Wright, Daniel Murphy and Scott Hairston each had two hits and an RBI. Andres Torres had two hits (including a solo HR, his first) and two RBI, and Ike Davis had a pair of hits, including a three-blast in the eight inning to extend the lead.
Philadelphia’s Kyle Kendrick, relieved Cliff Lee is the seventh inning and promptly gave up a 4-2 lead, allowing three runs in the seventh, and was charged with two more in the eighth.
Tim Byrdak (2-0) relieved Dillon Gee in the sixth, and while he faced only one batter in the game, was credited with the win.
The Mets are off on Thursday before taking their five-game winning streak into Miami on Friday night.
