The New York Mets bullpen allowed seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings letting a would-be Mike Pelfrey win slip away, along with the opportunity to sweep the defending NL East champs.

After taking the first two games of the series over the weekend, Ike Davis snapped out of his early season funk with a two-run home run in the top of the first to put the Mets on top.

Pelfrey gave up a run in return in the bottom half, but otherwise kept the Phillies off the board in his six-innings of work. He allowed eight hits and two walks but was able to pitch out of trouble through the afternoon.

Ramon Ramirez, Manny Acosta and Miguel Batista pitched the final two innings, surrendering six hits and seven runs. Acosta was charged with four runs, but none were earned thanks to a throwing error by shortstop Ruben Tejada.

Ex-Met Ty Wigginton dd the most damage with four RBI.

Davis ended the day 2 for 4, bringing has average up to .125. David Wright was also 2 for 4 and actually dropped his average to .571.

The Mets (6-3) open a series in Atlanta tonight at 7:10 with Dillon Gee vs. Tommy Hanson.
