Recap: Game 129 - Phillies (2) at Mets (1) - Zach Impresses, Bats Flutter

Philadelphia (60-71)«000200000260
N.Y. Mets (58-71)010000000150

W: C. Lee (11-6) L: Z. Wheeler (6-3) S: J. Papelbon (22)
HR: PHI - None   NYM - None


Cliff Lee pitched eight solid innings and Cody Asche hit a two-run triple as the Philadelphia Phillies took a 2-1 win over the New York Mets to open a four-game series.

Lee (11-6) gave up just one run on five hits with a walk and seven strikeouts to win for the first time since July 5 against Atlanta. He was 0-4 in his previous six starts.

Michael Young had two hits and scored once, while Darin Ruf also scored for the Phillies, who have won seven of their past nine games.

Zack Wheeler (6-3) was the hard-luck loser as he worked 6 2/3 innings and gave up just two runs and five hits with a walk and seven strikeouts. Andrew Brown drove in the lone run of the game for the Mets, who have dropped five straight.

Before the game, the Mets received some terrible news as phenom pitcher Matt Harvey's season is over after an MRI on Monday revealed that he has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow.

He earned his first career All-Star nod this season and finishes his second campaign 9-5 with a 2.27 earned run average in 26 games.

The Mets got on the board in the second inning as Marlon Byrd doubled to start the inning and quickly came home when Brown singled to center. Lee limited the damage by retiring the next three batters.

Philadelphia went on top in the fourth inning. With two outs, Young kept the inning alive with a single and Ruf worked a walk. Asche then launched a pitch that rolled to the wall in right for a triple.

After giving up a one-out single in the fourth, Lee got Brown to hit into a double play and didn't allow a man on base over the next three innings.

Travis d'Arnuad singled with one out in the eighth and pinch-hitter Lucas Duda drew a two-out walk to bring the tying run to scoring position, but Lee struck out Juan Lagares.

Jonathan Papelbon worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his 22nd save of the season.

Game Notes

The Phillies have won eight of the 13 games against the Mets this season ... Lee moved to 6-2 in 11 career starts against the Mets ... Philly left seven men on base after batting 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position.

Lefty Cliff Lee tries again for a first win since before the All-Star break when the Philadelphia Phillies visit Citi Field for the first game of a four-game series with the New York Mets.

A 17-game winner in 2011 before plummeting to just six wins in 30 starts last season, Lee was 10-2 after a 5-4 defeat of the Atlanta Braves on July 5. He went 6 1/3 innings in that game and gave up four runs, then dropped a 5-1 verdict to Washington in his final pre-break appearance five days later.

The Mets beat him, 5-0, in his first start after the break on July 21, and Lee has gone 0-2 in four more starts since while allowing 12 runs on 29 hits in 26 innings of work.

He's 5-2 in 10 career starts against the Mets.

For New York, righty Zack Wheeler faces the Phillies for the second time in his 13th career start.

Wheeler took a no-decision upon meeting Philadelphia for the first time on July 20 at home, where he allowed seven hits and two runs in 4 2/3 innings while walking two and striking out five.

Happy Recap: Game 129 - Mets at Phillies - Mets Beat Phillies 9-5

Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia, Pa.)

Philadelphia (61-68)4000100000560

W: B. Parnell (4-3) L: B. Rosenberg (0-2)
HR: NYM - M. Baxter (1),K. Shoppach (7)   PHI - R. Howard (9),C. Utley (9)

Ike Davis hit a go-ahead RBI double during a four-run 10th inning and the New York Mets came back to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-5, in the opener of a three-game series.

Davis, who hit a walkoff homer against the Houston Astros on Sunday, drove in David Wright with a double to the left-field gap against B.J. Rosenberg (0-2).

Lucas Duda followed with an RBI single before Kelly Shoppach helped send the Mets to their third consecutive win with a towering homer into the seats in left field.

"They're gonna play it out," Mets manager Terry Collins said of his club's effort. "There's guys playing for jobs, there's guys playing for careers and there's still a lot of fight."

Bobby Parnell (4-3) tossed two scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory.

Shoppach added a game-tying double in the eighth inning off Antonio Bastardo. The shallow line drive scored Wright, who led off with a walk against Josh Lindblom, and ended a season-best 15 2/3 scoreless innings by the Philadelphia bullpen.

The Phillies, who were coming off a three-game sweep of the National League East-leading Washington Nationals, wasted a first-inning grand slam from Ryan Howard and a homer from Chase Utley.

"(Rosenberg) is new," said Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. "He hasn't been out there that much. He's got a good arm but at the same time he needs experience in the big leagues."

Chris Young got the start for the Mets and allowed five runs on four hits with three walks over 4 1/3 innings. He was removed after Utley gave the Phillies a 5-4 lead with his ninth homer of the season.

Vance Worley countered with 4 1/3 innings for the Phillies and gave up four runs on nine hits. The righty hasn't won a game since Aug. 1 and has not reached 100 pitches in any of his last seven starts.

New York opened the game with three straight singles -- by Ruben Tejada, Daniel Murphy and Wright -- for a 1-0 lead.

Howard's first-inning blast was preceded by a pair of walks and a hit batsman. The former NL MVP then turned on a 1-2 fastball and sent it into the seats in right-center field, marking his 11th career grand slam and first of the season.

In the fourth, Duda led off with a single and two batters later Mike Baxter deposited his first homer of the year into the right-field stands, making it 4-3.

Wright's sacrifice fly in the fifth drove Worley from the game and scored Tejada, who led off with a ground-rule double and moved up on Murphy's base hit.

Game Notes

The Mets improved to 6-1 at Citizens Bank Park this season. They lead the season-series, 9-4 ... Worley threw 60 pitches. He is 0-3 over his last seven home starts.

Young righty Vance Worley meets the New York Mets for the ninth time in his 53rd big-league appearance tonight when the Philadelphia Phillies host them in game one of a three-game set at Citizens Bank Park.

A 24-year-old from Sacramento, Worley was selected in the third round of the 2008 draft and reached the majors two years later in 2010, going 1-1 in five appearances with a 1.38 earned run average.

He upped his appearances to 25 - 21 starts - with the Phillies in 2011 and won 11 of 14 decisions, and is approaching his career mark for outings with 22 through his most recent start on Aug. 22.

He dropped a 3-2 verdict to Cincinnati in that start, allowing two runs on eight hits in six innings.

Worley hasn't won since Aug. 1 in Washington, when he allowed two unearned runs in seven innings of a 3-2 victory.

He last faced the Mets on July 3 in New York and was ripped for six runs on 10 hits in just four innings of an 11-1 defeat.

In 12 starts at home this year, he's 2-5 with a 5.00 ERA.

New York sends journeyman Chris Young to the mound for his 15th start of 2012, the most starts he's made since 2009.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Mike Pelfrey (6-10, 4.61) Philadelphia - Kyle Kendrick (7-5, 3.24)

The New York Mets hope a quick turnaround will cure their recent woes when they finish a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies this afternoon from Citizens Bank Park.

New York suffered its fifth straight loss in last night's 9-4 decision in the second portion of this series, as starting pitcher Jon Niese was rattled for eight runs and 10 hits in four innings of work. Niese, a lefty, aggravated a muscle on his right side and could be headed to the disabled list.

"I don't know if I damaged it more," Niese said on the club's official website. "I doubt it. But it's one of those things where I can't pitch with it. I've just got to get it better."

Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer and Justin Turner chipped in two hits and an RBI for New York, which is just 2-11 in its last 13 games and will head home after today's game to begin an eight-game residency versus Atlanta and Florida. Duda has two homers and six RBI over his last four games. Center fielder Angel Pagan is battling a stomach bug and has reached base safely in 18 of the 19 games he's played this month. Pagan was forced out of the game Monday because of possible symptoms of colitis.

"It's scary, because when you have a disease that's going to be with you your whole life, you don't know what it's going to turn into," Pagan said. "I'm very thankful now that they know how to control everything and I know how to take care of everything myself. I'm a little more calm about it."

The Mets are hoping Mike Pelfrey can get back into the win column for the first time since July 27 when he gets the nod this afternoon. Pelfrey is 0-1 in five starts since then and lost to Milwaukee on Friday in a 6-1 defeat. Pelfrey allowed four runs -- three earned -- and eight hits in five frames to fall to 6-19 in 26 games (25 starts) to go along with a 4.61 ERA.''
