Recap


Phillies 10, Mets 6:
Shane Victorino’s eighth-inning sacrifice fly snapped a 3-3 tie as Philadelphia won for the sixth time in eight games.

Juan Pierre and Hunter Pence singled to lead off the eighth off New York reliever Jon Rauch (3-4). With one out, Victorino drove home Pierre with his sacrifice fly to center.

Philadelphia reliever Antonio Bastardo (2-1) pitched a scoreless seventh inning for the victory. Philadelphia's Jimmy Rollins finished 3-for-5 and hit his second homer -- a three-run shot -- in the ninth as the Phillies scored six times in the inning. Pierre added three hits.

New York starter Dillon Gee was in line for his third consecutive victory, but Bobby Parnell gave up Carlos Ruiz’s pinch-hit game-tying homer with two out in the seventh. Ruiz connected for his seventh homer of the season after Brian Schneider doubled off Gee, knotting the score at 3-3.

New York took a 3-1 lead in the sixth. Scott Hairston doubled to left with one out. Two hitters later, Lucas Duda connected on his sixth homer of the season, a two-run shot to right on the first pitch from Philadelphia starter Cliff Lee. Duda added a solo homer in the ninth as the Mets scored three times.

David Wright drove in the Mets’ first run with a one-out double in the first. Philadelphia answered in the second on Ty Wigginton fifth homer of the season, a solo shot to left.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Gee gave up six hits and two runs in 6 2/3 innings, walking one and striking out five. … Lee gave up three runs and seven hits in six innings, remaining winless on the season. … The Mets sent another infielder to the disabled list Wednesday, shelving Ronny Cedeno with a strained left calf. Jordany Valdespin was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.
