The Philadelphia Phillies got back to looking like potential National League pennant winners on Sunday, as they pounded out 19 hits and took out some frustration on the New York Mets, beating them 9-4 to avoid being swept in a three-game series.

The victory snaps the Phillies season-high eight-game losing streak,

Hunter Pence belted a two-run homer and a triple among his three hits, Jimmy Rollins had three hits and Carlos Ruiz went 4-for-4 with two RBI for the National League East champions.

NL Cy Young candidate Roy Halladay (19-6) tossed six scoreless innings and gave up only four hits.

Ronny Paulino smacked a home run, Jason Pridie had three hits and Justin Turner chipped in with an RBI double for the Mets, who had their three-game winning streak halted.

Mike Pelfrey (7-13) was hammered in three innings of work, giving up nine runs on five hits.
