Recap


Mets 3, Phillies 2: Lucas Duda homered and rookie Matt Harvey pitched into the seventh inning as visiting New York won its second consecutive game over Philadelphia.

Harvey (3-3) also helped himself at the plate, driving home Scott Hairston with a run-scoring single. The right-hander struck out six in 6 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and two runs with two walks.

Philadelphia scratched starter Cole Hamels, who was feeling ill, and promoted top pitching prospect Tyler Cloyd (0-1). Making his major-league debut, Cloyd gave up seven hits and three runs in six innings with two walks and five strikeouts.

With New York trailing 2-1 entering the third, Ike Davis singled to right with one out and Duda followed with his 13th homer of the season, a two-run shot to put the Mets ahead.

Down 1-0 in the second, Harvey singled to left to score Hairston. Philadelphia jumped back ahead in the second on Jimmy Rollins’ double to right, scoring Kevin Frandsen.

Frank Francisco pitched the ninth for his 22nd save.

Duda and Davis each finished with two hits for New York. Juan Pierre had two hits for the Phillies.
