Final Score: New York 2, Philadelphia 1 (11 innings)
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Lucas Duda's single in the 11th sent
the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.
Singles from Curtis Granderson and David Wright, coupled with a walk by Eric
Campbell, loaded the bases with one out in the 11th. Duda then ripped a single
out to right off Antonio Bastardo (5-5) to give the Mets a one-run lead.
"Great job by (Granderson) to get on, (Wright) with a double, (Campbell) with
a huge at-bat," said Duda. "I was lucky enough to elevate a ball and sneak it
over the second baseman's head."
Ryan Howard singled with two outs in the home half, then Marlon Byrd drew a
walk before Jeurys Familia nailed down his second save of the season by
getting Domonic Brown to ground out.
Dana Eveland (1-1) registered the win for pitching a scoreless 10th inning.
"It was a good ball game," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "We pitched very,
very well the whole game. That was a good grind-out win for us."
Philadelphia's Cole Hamels was in a battle with New York's Dillon Gee prior to
the extra frames.
Hamels, who has now given up one run or fewer in five straight starts, allowed
a run on five hits and three walks in seven frames.
The starter Gee stifled the Phillies to one run on three hits through seven
The Mets opened the scoring with a run in the fifth. Duda singled to center,
Travis d'Arnaud walked and Juan Lagares blooped a single into left that loaded
the bases. Wilmer Flores then ripped a hard grounder to third baseman Cody
Asche, who made a diving stop and got the force out at second. Duda scored on
the play, and Hamels would get Gee to pop out on a bunt attempt which preceded
Curtis Granderson's flyout to left.
"It's baseball," said Hamels. "You have to be able to make pitches at the
right time. I think Cody made an outstanding catch otherwise I thought there
would have been quite a few more runs on the board."
Hamels worked out of a jam in the sixth. With runners at the corners and one
out, the southpaw got Duda to roll into an inning-ending 4-6-3 double play.
Philadelphia had been held scoreless for 14 straight innings with Hamels on
the mound until Carlos Ruiz tied the game with one swing of the bat in the
seventh. Ruiz clubbed a middle-in fastball over the wall in left to tie the
game at 1-1 with two outs.
Neither team threatened from there until Duda helped New York win its second
game of this four-game set.
This was the sixth extra-inning game between the Phillies and Mets this season
... Former Phillies manager Charlie Manual became the 36th person inducted
into the Phillies Wall of Fame. The organization conducted a lavish pre-game
ceremony to honor the long-time skipper. Mike Lieberthal presented Manuel with
his Wall of Fame jersey, while Jim Thome unveiled a plaque on the wall beyond
center field and Roy Halladay presented Manuel with a framed picture ... Jimmy
Rollins and Ruiz each had two hits in the setback ... New York went 2-for-11
with runners in scoring position, while Philadelphia finished 0-for-3.
