Mets rally in 9th, beat Phillies in 11th
Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Ruben Tejada's walk-off hit in the 11th inning scored Chris Young and lifted the New York Mets to a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday to salvage a three-game series.
The Mets, their rallies stunted all day by Cole Hamels, were three outs away from being swept before they tied the game with three runs in the ninth inning against the Phillies bullpen.
Their winning rally started when Chris Young beat out a grounder to second baseman Chase Utley, who scooped the ball to first with his glove but not in time.
Young moved up on Zack Wheeler's bunt before Jeff Manship (1-1) intentionally walked Juan Lagares. Anthony Recher followed with a single to load the bases before Tejada's hit to center field won it.
Hamels threw a career-high 133 pitches in seven hardscrabble innings for the Phillies but the bullpen blew the left-hander's bid for a 100th career win.
