Mets Vs. Phillies Final Score: New York Wins 6-5 On David Wright Walkoff Single

David Wright singled in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the New York Mets a 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in Gathe final game of a three-game series at Citi Field on Thursday night. With the game tied 5-5 and the bases loaded with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Wright singled to right field to score Jordany Valdespin. He finished 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs.

The Mets entered the inning down 5-4. Ike Davis led off with a double. After getting two outs, Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon (2-3) then walked the bases loaded. Daniel Murphy drove in the tying run on an infield single that Papelbon could not make a play on.

R.A. Dickey, who started for the Mets, wasn't as sharp as fans have come to expect. In seven innings, he allowed five runs, all earned, off 11 hits and a walk while striking out seven. Jimmy Rollins was lethal at the plate for the Phillies, going 3-for-3 with two walks, falling a home run short of the cycle. His sixth inning triple scored Cole Hamels, and tied the game at four runs apiece. Rollins then ran in a run to give the Phillies a 5-4 lead off a Juan Pierre sacrifice to the pitcher.

Hamels also went seven innings, giving up four earned runs off seven hits and a walk while striking out seven. Scott Hairston put the Mets on the board with a solo home run (12th of the season) in the second inning. Wright gave the Mets a 4-3 lead, their first lead of the evening, with a two-run homer (11th of the season) to left in fifth.

Bobby Parnell (2-1) was given the win after giving up no hits and striking out two in the top of the ninth inning.
