HR: PHI - J. Rollins (15)   NYM - D. Murphy (8),L. Duda (19)

Recap:

Lucas Duda continued his recent tear and Zack Wheeler pitched into the seventh inning, as the New York Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 11-2, in the rubber match of a three-game set Wednesday afternoon at Citi Field.

Daniel Murphy added a three-run homer, finishing 3-for-5 with two runs scored, and Ruben Tejada and Juan Lagares had three hits apiece for the Mets, who have won six of nine.

Duda finished 2-for-5 with a homer, three RBIs and two runs scored for New York, which has won four straight home series. The first baseman, who was also robbed of a homer in this game, is riding a modest six-game hitting streak, belting four homers and driving in 10 runs over that span. Since the All-Star break, Duda is hitting .302 (13-for-43) with five homers, 11 RBIs and 11 runs scored.

Wheeler (6-8) allowed two runs on seven hits, striking out four and walking two to win his third straight decision. The right-hander has tossed at least six innings in his last six trips to the hill, allowing two runs or fewer each time.

Jimmy Rollins hit a pinch-hit home run and Ryan Howard drove in a run for the Phillies, who have lost eight of 12 to the Mets this season.

Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick (5-11) suffered the loss, allowing four runs on seven hits, striking out four and walking two over six frames. The right- hander has dropped three of his last four starts.

After Phils center fielder Ben Revere kept it a scoreless game in the fourth inning, making a leaping catch at the wall in right-center to rob Duda of a home run, he played a part in getting Philadelphia on the board in the fifth.

Revere led off the inning with a double, stole third with two outs and then scored when Howard ended a personal 0-for-12 slump with a double.

The Mets though, took the lead in the bottom of the inning. Lagares and Tejada began the inning with consecutive singles and then advanced 90 feet on Wheeler's sacrifice bunt. Curtis Granderson was then walked to load the bases for Murphy.

Kendrick uncorked a wild pitch on the first offering to Murphy to allow Lagares to score the game-tying run. Then, his 2-1 pitch to Murphy was deposited into the stands in left field for a 4-1 lead.

Rollins hit a pinch-hit homer to lead off the seventh to cut the visitors' deficit to 4-2, but the Mets put the game out of reach in the home half.

Duda, Travis d'Arnaud, Chris Young, Tejada and relief pitcher Jeurys Familia all came through with RBI singles in the frame to make it a 9-2 contest.

Duda rounded out the scoring with his two-run homer in the eighth, with Murphy aboard thanks to a single two batters prior.

Game Notes

Revere's stolen base was his 29th of the season ... Murphy hit his eighth HR of the season. He leads the NL with 130 hits ... Duda's HR was his 19th of the season ... Familia's RBI was the first of his career ... The Mets improved to 5-1-1 in their last seven series ... New York also upped its mark to 23-13 during day games this season ... Rollins has 15 HRs this season ... Granderson ended 1-for-4 with two runs scored for the Mets.

Hamels (6-5) allowed just six hits without a walk, striking out eight to win his third straight start.

Chase Utley hit a grand slam, while Jimmy Rollins and Grady Sizemore each added a solo home run for the Phillies, who have won four of their last six.

Dillon Gee was tagged for five runs on five hits and three walks over 6 2/3 innings for the Mets, who had won five of seven coming in.

In the fourth, Sizemore lined a pitch off the foul pole in right field for his first home run as a Phillie and a 2-0 advantage.

The seventh saw Domonic Brown single and, with two outs, Ben Revere get hit by a pitch. Rollins then walked to load the bases for Utley, who crushed a pitch over the right field wall for his ninth home run of the season.

Hamels allowed a two-out double by David Wright in the third inning, but he then struck out Eric Campbell.

The final out of the fourth inning started a run by Hamels that saw him retire the final 13 batters he faced.

Recap:

Bartolo Colon pitched into the eighth inning and Travis d'Arnaud hit a three-run home run as the New York Mets thumped the Philadelphia Phillies, 7-1, in the opener of a three-game series.

The Mets jumped all over Burnett in the first inning and it got started with a walk from Curtis Granderson and he scored when Daniel Murphy followed with a double. Two batters later, Duda scored Murphy. Following a double from d'Arnaud that put men on second and third, Lagares doubled home both runners for a 4-0 lead.

HR: NYM - L. Duda (18)   MIL - None

Recap:

Closer Jenrry Mejia extended his arms in front of him and kneeled quickly as he let out a yell with the final out secured in first baseman Lucas Duda's glove.

A 2-0 victory Sunday over the Milwaukee Brewers allowed the New York Mets to head home after the All-Star break, happy with a 5-5 record on its grueling 10-game road trip.

Duda hit a two-run homer and rookie Jacob deGrom pitched well into the seventh to allow the Mets to split a four-game series with the NL Central-leading Brewers.

With the non-waiver trade deadline looming Thursday, the Mets are five games under .500 overall at 50-55 and 6 1/2 games back in the wild card race.

Duda sent an 0-2 slider in the sixth from rookie Jimmy Nelson (1-2) into the second deck above right field to break a scoreless pitcher's duel. It was Duda's third homer in four days in Milwaukee.

Overall, Duda finished with four homers and seven RBIs on the road.

The Brewers mounted a ninth-inning rally against Mejia with two outs after Jean Segura's single put runners on first and second. Mejia got Lyle Overbay to ground out for his 15th save.

DeGrom (5-5) held the Brewers to four hits and two walks, exiting with one out in the seventh after allowing two singles. Reliever Vic Black got out of that jam.

DeGrom had location and life on a fastball that peaked in the mid-90s, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.

The closest thing to a rally came in the ninth after Khris Davis reached first on an infield single with one out. The play stood following a replay review.

Mejia got Mark Reynolds to strike out before Segura singled to put the tying run on base. After Overbay grounded out, Mejia savored the save with his animated celebration.

The rookie starters matched scoreless innings early. Nelson allowed four doubles and got into a little trouble in missing high with his sinker, but finished with six strikeouts in seven innings. He was also helped by three double plays.

But that one slider he left up to Duda proved to be the difference. At least Nelson got to smile after singling up the middle in the third for his first career hit in 66 at-bats as a professional, dating back to the minor leagues.

DeGrom won his fourth straight start, each time getting into the seventh. The most worrisome pitch for the righty came when Reynolds hit a towering fly ball to left that appeared to hit the heavy wires that support Miller Park's retractable roof.

The ball caromed back into fair territory, and Davis, at first, was racing around third when he was held up after the umpires ruled the play foul. DeGrom then struck out Reynolds looking.

The right-hander with curly brown hair flowing out from under his blue cap had hitters swinging through fastballs that peaked in the mid-90s. He finished with four strikeouts and lowered his ERA to 2.81.

NOTES: The Mets improved to 22-13 in day games. ... 3B Aramis Ramirez, who was 2 for 24 on the seven-game homestand, had a day off before popping out in the seventh as a pinch hitter. ... Manager Ron Roenicke indicated 2B Scooter Gennett could return to action full time when the Brewers open a three-game series Monday in Tampa ... Bartolo Colon (9-8) starts when the Mets return to the Citi Field for the first time since the All-Star break to play the Phillies on Monday. ... Kyle Lohse (11-4) opens the three-game series against the Rays for Milwaukee.

HR: NYM - C. Granderson (15)   MIL - M. Reynolds (17)

Recap:

A night after the Milwaukee Brewers bullpen squandered a game in the ninth inning, the relief corps nailed down a win over the New York Mets.

Four relievers held the Mets scoreless over the final 3 1-3 innings, and the Brewers beat the Mets 5-2 on Saturday night.

Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez, who blew a save chance and took the loss against the Mets on Friday night, recorded his 30th save in 34 chances. He gave up a one-out double in the ninth but recorded two strikeouts in the inning.

Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta earned his team-leading 12th win but struggled with his command.

Peralta (12-6) labored through 5 2-3 innings, giving up six hits and two runs. He walked three batters and struck out two. He threw 103 pitches and didn't show the command he had in his previous outing on Monday against Cincinnati, when he surrendered three hits and one run in seven innings.

Peralta said he struggled with command of his fastball.

Even on an off night, Peralta is difficult to hit, Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Mark Reynolds homered and Jonathan Lucroy, Ryan Braun and Khris Davis added run-scoring hits for NL Central Division-leading Milwaukee.

Jon Niese (5-6) took the loss, giving up five hits and three runs in five innings. He walked two batters and struck out four.

The Mets took a 1-0 lead when Curtis Granderson, mired in an 0-for-18 slump, led off the third with a double to center. He moved to third on a groundout and scored on Lucas Duda's soft single to center.

In his next at-bat, leading off the fifth, Granderson hit a line drive home run down the right-field line to make it 2-0.

The Brewers got on the board in the fifth when Jean Segura reached on a fielder's choice, stole second, advanced to third on a fly out by Peralta and scored on a wild pitch by Niese.

Milwaukee grabbed the lead later in the inning when Lucroy blasted a double to deep center with two outs, scoring Carlos Gomez, who had singled. Braun followed with an RBI single to give the Brewers a 3-2 edge.

Reynolds extended Milwaukee's lead to two runs in the sixth with a 420-foot home run to center off Carlos Torres.

The Brewers made it 5-2 in the eighth on Davis' RBI double.

NOTES: The Mets placed RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka on the 15-day DL with right elbow inflammation. Matsuzaka returned to New York on Friday for an MRI. The team recalled pitcher Buddy Carlyle from Triple-A Las Vegas. ... The Brewers honored Negro League players Ted Toles Jr. and Nathan ''Sonny'' Weston during a pregame ceremony. ... Niese batted eighth despite entering the game with an .036 batting average. Outfielder Eric Young Jr. batted ninth. ... Milwaukee's Jimmy Nelson (1-1) faces New York's Jacob deGrom (4-5) in the series finale on Sunday.

HR: NYM - L. Duda (17)   MIL - C. Gomez (15)

Recap:

Lucas Duda's two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning gave the New York Mets a 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday.

Milwaukee carried a 2-0 lead into the ninth inning thanks to 7 2/3 scoreless innings by Yovani Gallardo, but closer Francisco Rodriguez (4-4) failed to record an out before the Mets went in front. Daniel Murphy doubled to left to start the frame and David Wright singled to make it 2-1. Duda followed with a no-doubter over the wall in right.

Jenrry Mejia struck out the side in the ninth to earn his 14th save.

Gallardo is now winless in his last six starts despite striking out eight and yielding just four hits during his stint.

Zack Wheeler also pitched well despite not factoring into the decision. The young righty fanned nine in 6 2/3 frame, surrendering two runs -- one earned -- on three hits.

Murphy had three hits for the Mets, who have won three of four.

Carlos Gomez had two of Milwaukee's three hits, including a solo homer, as the Brewers' four-game win streak came to an end. Aramis Ramirez was credited with the other RBI.

Rickie Weeks drew a walk to start the home sixth and moved to third when Ryan Braun's grounder trickled under Murphy's glove at second base and into right. Ramirez then worked the count full before grounding softly to shortstop, plating Weeks on a fielder's choice. Ramirez beat out the throw to first and Lyle Overbay walked with two outs, but Jean Segura's innocent grounder ended the threat with the Brewers up just 1-0.

Gomez then made it 2-0 with his two-out home run a half inning later, and Weeks followed with a bullet liner off the wall in right-center for a double, chasing Wheeler from the game. Vic Black came on and got Braun to fly to right to end the seventh.

Carlos Torres (5-4) tossed a scoreless eighth inning for the Mets.

Game Notes

Milwaukee second baseman Scooter Gennett missed his third straight game with tightness in his quad ... The Brewers went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and stranded nine.
