HR: NYM - W. Flores (1)   PHI - None

Recap:

Wilmer Flores hit a grand slam and knocked in a career-high six runs, and the New York Mets took an 11-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the finale of a five-game set from Citizens Bank Park.

Bartolo Colon (5-5) earned the victory after hurling seven-plus innings, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts.

David Wright and Curtis Granderson each knocked in a pair of runs in the win, New York's ninth win in its last 10 in the City of Brotherly Love.

Roberto Hernandez (2-3) was saddled with the loss, giving up five runs -- four earned -- on five hits and two walks with five strikeouts.

The Phillies and Mets played a total of 57 innings in the unconventional series. Philadelphia dropped the final three games of the set and ended its 11-game homestand with a 4-7 mark.

Bobby Abreu doubled into the right-field corner with one out in the second and Lucas Duda followed with a run-scoring double to make it 1-0 Mets.

Ryan Howard, who homered in each of the last two games coming in, skied a towering drive out to center in the bottom half, where Matt den Dekker leaped at the wall to rob Howard of a solo homer.

Den Dekker saved another run in the third when he pegged Reid Brignac at home following a single by Ben Revere.

New York opened the sixth inning with three straight hits. Den Dekker and Daniel Murphy each singled to put runners at the corners before Wright knocked in both with a double to center.

Later in the inning, Chase Utley booted a potential inning-ending double play ball, and Flores made the Phillies pay with a double into right that scored two and increased the cushion to 5-0.

After a walk to Cesar Hernandez and a double by Utley, Howard got the Phillies on the board with an RBI groundout in the home half of the sixth.

Philadelphia chased Colon after back-to-back singles from Ben Revere and Hernandez to begin the eighth. Utley then flied out which allowed Revere to advance to third with one out.

Howard struck out, but Revere crossed home on a wild pitch by Jeurys Familia.

The Mets left no doubt of the game's outcome as Flores highlighted a six-run ninth with his grand slam off Phillipe Aumont.

Game Notes

The teams played two 14-inning affairs along with an 11-inning game during the set. The Phillies played consecutive 14-inning games for the first time in franchise history ... Philadelphia entered the game batting .209 during the homestand. It had seven hits on Monday ... Colon has won his last three starts and faced the Phillies for the first time since June 16, 2008. He entered 1-2 with a 4.65 ERA in five career matchups ... New York finished 5-for-12 with runners in scoring position, while Philadelphia went 1-for-8 in such instances.

Preview:

The New York Mets have already had three lengthy games in Philadelphia and are set to play their fifth overall contest in the series Monday night.

They can't complain too much about all of this extra time at Citizens Bank Park given their recent success there.

Bartolo Colon will seek to lead the Mets to their ninth victory in 10 road games against the Phillies and sixth in seven games overall in a rescheduled contest.

The Mets (27-29) have won 18 of 24 in Philadelphia, including 4-1 this season with only a 14-inning loss Friday keeping them from being undefeated there. New York has played 25 more innings in the past two games and won both, with Lucas Duda hitting a two-run homer in the 11th in Sunday's 4-3 victory.

Collins' club has already clinched a second consecutive series victory, having won back-to-back games over Pittsburgh before winning three of four from the Phillies.

Colon (4-5, 4.73 ERA) now looks to win a third straight start. He had arguably his finest outing of the year Wednesday, yielding five hits in 7 1/3 innings in a 5-0 win over the Pirates. He struck out a season-best nine while throwing a season-high 121 pitches.

The right-hander has a 1.17 ERA in his back-to-back wins after going 0-2 with an 8.31 ERA in his previous three starts. He's helped the Mets post a 2.21 ERA in their last 11 games.

Colon is 2/3 with a 6.51 ERA in six road starts but was solid in his last one, giving up two runs over eight innings in a 5-2 win at Washington on May 17.

Colon is facing the Phillies (24-30) for the first time since an 8-2 loss for Boston on June 16, 2008, in Philadelphia. He's 1-2 with a 4.65 ERA in five career matchups.

He'll pitch opposite Phillies' No. 5 starter Roberto Hernandez (2-2, 3.76). The right-hander has been effective in each of his past four starts but has not gotten a victory in the last three.

Hernandez started that winless stretch with his lone career start against the Mets on May 9, allowing one run over five innings in a 3-2 victory. He pitched out of the bullpen over the ensuing two weeks and has done a decent job in two outings since rejoining the rotation, giving up four runs in 12 innings. However, he allowed nine walks in those two games.

He'll try to keep those free passes at a minimum while preventing the Mets from earning their seventh win in 10 road games.

The Phillies have batted .209 on their 11-game homestand that ends Monday.

Ryan Howard has gone deep each of the last two days and has four homers in his last seven games with 14 RBIs.

Duda has three homers and seven RBIs in his last seven games.

The last series to feature four straight extra-inning games was between Seattle and Texas in September 2002. Since 1912, no series has featured four games of 11-plus innings.

Recap:

Lucas Duda stroked a two-run homer in the top of the 11th inning to lift the New York Mets to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday in the third straight extra-inning game between the NL East rivals.

After retiring the first two batters he's faced this season, Phillippe Aumont (0-1) walked Travis d'Arnaud in the 11th. Duda then smacked a second-pitch sinker over the center-field wall.

Josh Edgin (1-0) pitched a clean 10th inning to earn his first win of the season. Jenrry Mejia allowed a Marlon Byrd solo homer in the bottom of the 11th, but was able to record the next two outs to secure his sixth save of the year.

Chris Young and Curtis Granderson each drove in a run for the Mets, who have won five of their last six, including three of the first four games of this five-game series.

Ryan Howard had a two-run home run for the Phillies, who have lost three of their last four.

After the previous two games of this series went into 14 innings with each team taking a game, both clubs had opportunities to break the 2-2 tie in the seventh.

The Mets had runners on first and second with one out, but Cole Hamels got Eric Campbell swinging and sat down Young on his 125th pitch of the day to escape unscathed.

Cesar Hernandez was on second with one out when Domonic Brown singled to move Hernandez to third, but Brown was caught between first and second to make the second out. Ben Revere grounded out to strand Hernandez at third.

David Wright doubled to begin the fourth and Campbell beat out an infield single to third to put runners on the corners with no outs. Young's sac fly in foul territory was far enough down the third base line to score Wright.

Howard answered in the home half when he crushed a two-run homer to center field to put the Phillies ahead 2-1. Carlos Ruiz doubled with one-out to reach base.

A Jimmy Rollins' throwing error to first put Young on at first and advanced Campbell, who reached on a double, to third. Granderson lined a sac fly to left to tie the game at 2-2 in the sixth.

Game Notes

Mets starter Jonathon Niese yielded just two runs on eight hits over eight innings ... Hamels allowed just two runs -- one earned -- on six hits and four walks in seven innings ... Hamels passed Curt Schilling (1,554) for fourth on the Phillies all-time list for strikeouts with his strikeout against Campbell in the first inning ... Prior to Sunday's game, the Phillies placed pitcher Jeff Manship on the 15-day disabled list with a right quad strain and optioned outfielder/first baseman Darin Ruf to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. To take their places on the 25-man roster, the Phillies recalled Aumont and purchased the contract of pitcher Cesar Jimenez from Lehigh Valley.

Preview:

On Sunday, the workload will be on starters Jonathon Niese and Cole Hamels to work deep into this fourth game of a five-game wraparound series.

The teams have split back-to-back 14-inning contests, with the Mets avenging Friday night's 6-5 defeat by outlasting the Phillies 5-4 on Saturday thanks to David Wright's two-out go-ahead single.

The marathons have lasted a combined 10 hours and 55 minutes with 934 pitches thrown, leaving both bullpens taxed to a near-breaking point. Sixteen relievers -- eight of them appearing in both games -- have combined to throw 534 pitches in 32 innings.

Saturday's loser Antonio Bastardo has allowed the lone run by Phillies relievers in 15 innings over the two contests, but the Mets (26-29) have conceded only three in 17 -- and the 285 pitches logged by their bullpen are their most in consecutive games dating to at least 1988.

Buddy Carlyle, called up from Triple-A after Friday's loss, got his first win since 2008 with three scoreless innings.

The Mets likely won't be able to call on Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jeurys Familia, and Josh Edgin and Scott Rice might be restricted to situational help. Left-hander Dana Eveland will be added to the roster before the game according to MLB.com.

For Philadelphia (24-29), Bastardo, Mike Adams, Jonathan Papelbon and Mario Hollands all have thrown at least one inning in both contests, and Jeff Manship -- who strained his right quadriceps trying to beat out a chopper in the bottom of the 13th -- is unavailable after striking out six in four hitless innings.

Bastardo has pitched four consecutive days, walking seven in three innings over that span, and likely would be only used as a last resort.

Niese (3-3, 2.74 ERA) has pitched at least six innings in seven of his 10 starts, but he has failed to do that in two of his last three.

The left-hander struggled with his command Tuesday against Pittsburgh, walking four in 5 2/3 innings before New York pulled out a 4-2 win.

Niese did beat Hamels (1-3, 4.43) in a 6-1 victory April 29, holding the Phillies to one run in seven innings while Hamels was tagged for six in 4 2-3. On May 11, Hamels fanned 10 and allowed one run in seven innings and Niese yielded three in six of New York's 5-4, 11-inning victory.

Hamels lost to Colorado on Tuesday after giving up a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning of a 6-2 defeat, and his 14 losses to the Mets are his most against any team. Wright is hitting .329 (23 for 70) with five homers and three doubles against the lefty, while David Murphy is 17 for 40 with a homer and four doubles.

This is the second straight year Philadelphia will deal with an overworked bullpen in a series -- its relievers tossed 407 pitches Aug. 24 and 25 against Arizona, with 351 of them coming in a 12-7, 18-inning defeat. The Phillies won the following game 9-5.

Recap:

David Wright delivered a two-out RBI single in the top of the 14th inning to lift the New York Mets to a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the third installment of a five-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

Antonio Bastardo (3-3) replaced reliever Jeff Manship, who didn't allow a base runner in four innings but was injured running out a possible game-winning infield hit in the 13th. Bastardo walked Ruben Tejada and pinch-hitter Juan Lagares laid down a sac bunt to start the frame. Following an intentional walk and a pop out, Wright connected on a fastball to left to plate the go-ahead run.

Buddy Carlyle (1-0) pitched three innings of relief, allowing just two hits to earn his first win of the season.

After allowing the first two base runners to reach in the bottom of the 14th, Carlos Torres struck out two around a line out to secure his second save of the season.

Tejada finished 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a pair of RBI and two runs scored for the Mets, who have won five of their last seven contests.

The Phillies had a couple of opportunities in the extra innings to win the game but failed to come through.

With a runner on third and two outs in the 13th, it looked like Manship was going to beat out a chopper to second before pulling up with his quad injury. Philadelphia also had runners on the corners in the 10th with two outs but Marlon Byrd struck out to end the inning.

Earlier, Chris Young and Daniel Murphy each singled to begin the game. With runners on the corners and two outs, Bobby Abreu knocked in Young with a single to right and Lucas Duda followed with an RBI double to right to make it 2-0.

Tejada crushed a two-out solo home run to left in the fourth that snapped a personal 552 at-bat homerless streak.

The Mets made it 4-0 in the sixth on a two-out RBI single to left off the bat of Tejada. Abreu doubled and Duda was intentionally walked to reach base.

Ryan Howard crushed a hanging curveball to pull the Phillies within a run in the seventh. Jimmy Rollins singled to start the frame and Chase Utley followed with a walk before Howard's three-run homer to left field.

Ben Revere hit his third triple of the season with one out in the eighth off Daisuke Matsuzaka. Scott Rice, who took the mound after a Rollins' groundout to first, walked Utley on four pitches. Rice then fanned Howard to keep the 4-3 advantage.

Byrd smacked a double that landed just fair in right field to start the ninth. Domonic Brown tied the game with a line drive into left field. Pinch-hitter Cesar Hernandez followed with a sacrifice bunt to put Brown in scoring position, but Friday's hero, Reid Brignac, struck out and Carlos Ruiz popped out to end the threat.

Game Notes

Howard's three-run shot in the seventh accounted for his 1,000 RBI in his career; Howard's 1230 games are the fewest number of games to reach 1,000 RBI among all active major league players ... Mets starter Jacob deGrom yielded three runs on three hits while striking out a career-high 11 batters in 6 1/3 innings... Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick surrendered four runs on eight hits over six innings ... Philadelphia finished 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position, while New York went 4-for-15 with RISP ... Saturday marked the first time the Phillies played consecutive games of 14 or more innings in club history. The Phils took Friday's contest, 6-5, in 14 frames ... The game lasted five hours and 32 minutes.

TV - PIX 11 - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 3:05 PM

Preview:


Mets Rookie Jacob deGrom has been outstanding through his first three starts, but they've all ended in losses for New York (25-29) as he's gone 0-2 with a 1.83 ERA.

The New York Mets look to finally give deGrom some support Saturday when they continue a five-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The right-hander has been backed by four runs while becoming the first Mets pitcher to have an ERA under 2.00 through his first three starts without a win since Pete Harnisch and Mike Birkbeck in 1995.

Jim McAndrew is the only Mets rookie to do that through his first four starts in 1968.

The bullpen didn't do deGrom any favors Monday, wasting his 6 2-3 scoreless innings by surrendering five runs over the last two of a 5-3 defeat to Pittsburgh.

DeGrom is also doing his part at the plate, going 4 for 5 while getting at least one hit in each of his three starts. A shortstop at Stetson, he's accounted for half of New York's hits by pitchers.

The Mets may need him to go deep into this outing after fellow rookie Rafael Montero lasted 3 2-3 innings before seven relievers were used in a 6-5, 14-inning loss to the Phillies (24-28) on Friday.

New York had won the previous six meetings in Philadelphia, including a 4-1 victory in the opener of this series Thursday.

The Phillies will turn to Kyle Kendrick (1-5, 4.04), who may sympathize with deGrom's plight for a win. Kendrick is 8-8 with a 3.58 ERA vs the Mets in his career..

Kendrick scattered six hits in 6 2-3 innings of a 9-0 victory over Colorado on Monday, his first in 17 starts since beating the Chicago Cubs 9-8 on Aug. 6. Kendrick was 0-10 with a 5.11 ERA during his drought while receiving an average of 2.51 runs of support.

The right-hander gave up four runs in 5 1-3 innings of a 5-4 win at New York on May 10. He's won his last two home starts against the Mets, yielding four runs in 13 2-3 innings. David Wright sees RED when he meets Kendrick, He is batting .341 (15 for 44) with 3 big flies... Daniel Murphy is not hot vs Kendrick batting a mere .200 (6 for 30)...Lucas Duda also in the cold zone vs Kendrick (3 for 18) batting .167. Juan Lagares, who leads off is batting .600 (3 for 5) with a 2B...

Domonic Brown snapped out of his slump Friday, connecting for a three-run homer while adding another RBI. He had been 3 for 30 with one homer and two RBIs over his previous 10 games.

Mets can beat Kendrick, they just have to have the Wright kind of day...LGM!

Recap:

Reid Brignac delivered an RBI single to the wall in left field in the bottom of the 14th inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-5 win over the New York Mets in the second installment of a five-game series from Citizens Bank Park.

Marlon Byrd led off the 14th against Jenrry Mejia (4-2) with a routine fly to right, but heavy winds tricked Chris Young and the ball was dropped. Carlos Ruiz then roped a liner into center to put runners on the corners and Cesar Hernandez was walked intentionally to load the bases for Brignac. After missing badly on a first pitch fastball, Brignac connected on the second pitch of the at-bat and drove it to the wall, easily plating Byrd for the first run since the fifth inning.

Domonic Brown homered and drove in four runs for the Phillies, who won in walk-off fashion for the second time in three games. Byrd scored three runs, and Ruiz finished 4-for-6 in the triumph.

Justin De Fratus (1-0) pitched two hitless innings in relief to earn his first win of the season.

Phillies starter A.J. Burnett fanned the first two batters he faced in an easy 1-2-3 top of the first inning but came unraveled in the second. Walks to Curtis Granderson and Bobby Abreu put two on for Lucas Duda, who ripped a double down the first-base line. Abreu moved to third on the two-bagger and scored on Travis d'Arnaud's groundout. Ruben Tejada plated Duda with a single to left, and the Mets owned an early 3-0 lead.

Burnett singled to start the third and scored three batters later on Chase Utley's grounder to second to put Philadelphia on the board.

Brown, who has struggled this season following a breakout 2013 campaign, saw his batting average dip to .199 following a fly to left in the second inning, but it climbed back above .200 with his moonshot to right in the fourth. Byrd walked and Ruiz singled for Brown, who lifted a 2-0 offering over the wall in right to put the Phils in front.

Burnett struck out the side in the fifth, but not before serving up a two-run double to Abreu. Brown's RBI groundout in the home half of the fifth made it 5-5.

Mets starter Rafael Montero remains winless in his career after lasting just 3 2/3 innings in his fourth major league start. Montero was charged with four runs -- three earned -- and seven hits.

Game Notes

New York's three-game winning streak came to an end ... The Mets finished 3- for-15 with runners in scoring position ... The Phillies went 3-for-12 with RISP and left 17 on base ... Burnett allowed five runs in seven innings while striking out a season-high 11 batters. Burnett has 50 strikeouts in his last 41 innings against the Mets.
