Mets Complete Sweep Of Phillies, 10-6
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ike Davis hit a three-run homer, Andres Torres also connected and the New York Mets beat the Phillies 10-6 Wednesday night to complete their first three-game sweep in Philadelphia in six years.
The Mets rallied to win all three against slumping Philadelphia. They trailed after five innings against Roy Halladay on Monday, after six against Joe Blanton on Tuesday and after six against Cliff Lee in the series finale.
The five-time defending NL East champions are a season-worst four games under .500 at 14-18. The Mets (18-13) are five games above .500 for the first time since July 19, 2010.
Making his first start since straining his left oblique in the 10th inning of a gem against San Francisco on April 18, Lee allowed two runs and five hits, striking out six.
