HR: NYM - D. Wright (18),D. Murphy (12)   PHI - None


David Wright and Daniel Murphy hit solo home runs and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 Saturday night in a game called in the top of the seventh inning because of rain.

Wright connected for the third consecutive game and second straight day since returning from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for more than a month. He has the most homers by any visiting player at Citizens Bank Park with 19.

The Mets have won five of their last six series in Philadelphia.

Murphy broke a 1-all tie with a homer in a four-run sixth. His 12th homer of the season tied a career high set in 2009.

Juan Lagares chased Phillies starter Tyler Cloyd (2-6) from the game with a two-run triple in the sixth. Lagares was 1 for 31 at the plate before the hit.

Dillon Gee (12-10) yielded four runs on seven hits with a walk while going the distance. Three of those runs came in a rain-soaked sixth inning.

Cloyd lasted just five-plus innings for Philadelphia and allowed five runs on six hits, two walks and a hit batsman. In his last four starts, he has surrendered 22 runs in 19 innings.

Domonic Brown singled in the second, made it to third on Darin Ruf's infield hit and scored on a sacrifice fly, barely avoiding catcher Travis d'Arnaud's tag.

Cesar Hernandez, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley hit consecutive doubles in the sixth to spark a three-run inning. Carlos Ruiz picked up an RBI groundout and Utley scored on a wild pitch.

Wright drew a walk with one out in the seventh, heading to first base as the Phillies were already coming off the field because of the rain delay.

The teams played in the rain before the game was halted, and it was called after a wait of 1 hour, 28 minutes.

Game Notes

The Mets said RHP Zack Wheeler will be shut down for the remainder of the year. Wheeler went 7-5 with a 3.42 ERA in his rookie season. ... Collins said Wright will still get his scheduled day off Sunday, despite playing just six innings Saturday. ... Before the game, fans gave a loud ovation for Charlie Manuel, who was not present but received the Phillies' Dallas Green Award for Special Achievement. Manuel won his 1,000th career game as manager days before he was fired on Aug. 16. Rollins and Utley accepted the award in his absence. ... In the series finale and the Phillies' final home game of the year on Sunday, LHP Cliff Lee (14-6, 2.95) will oppose Mets RHP Carlos Torres (3-5, 3.48).
