Ethan Martin came on to toss a scoreless sixth inning for the Phillies, as the run he allowed was charged to Cloyd's line. Joe Savery came on for the seventh and recorded one out while walking a batter, before the rain stopped the game.
The Phillies grabbed a 1 to 0 lead in the second on a sacrifice fly by Cody Asche, but the Mets responded with a run of their own in the fourth. After the Mets burst out for four runs in the sixth to take the lead, the Phillies rallied in the bottom half of the frame, pulling to within 5 to 4. Jimmy Rollins doubled home a run and was brought home on a Carlos Ruiz RBI ground out. Chase Utley would score on a wild pitch to bring the Phillies within one, but that would be it, as the rain stopped the game in the next inning.
The Phillies will now finish their series with the Mets, as they play their final home game of a disappointing season. Cliff Lee will make the start for the Phillies.
