After falling behind 1 to 0 in the third, the Phillies tied things up in the fourth on a Jimmy Rollins double that plated Pete Orr. The Phillies would add three more in the fifth, as John Mayberry Jr. was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to give the Phillies the lead. Hamels then helped his own cause by singling home two runs to extend the Phillies lead to 4 to 1. The Phillies would tack on another in the sixth on Carlos Ruiz's solo home run, his fifth of the year. Kevin Frandsen would plate another run for the Phillies in the ninth as he reached on an error and that would be all she wrote, as the Phillies won 6 to 2.
One night after being shut out while only recording three hits, the Phillies showed signs of life, as they plated six runs on twelve hits.
The Phillies will close out this four game series with the Mets this afternoon. Ethan Martin will make the start, as the Phillies look to exit Citi Field with a series win.
