Mets-Phillies Final Score: New Yorks Downs Philadelphia, 7-4, For 4th Straight Win

The New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night, 7-4, to record their fourth straight win. The Phillies took a 4-0 lead through two innings, battering Miguel Batista with eight hits and four earned runs in his 5 1/3 innings on the mound. The Mets came back with a run in the fourth inning, and four in the seventh to take the lead for good.

Daniel Murphy put the Mets on the board with a single to score Kirk Nieuwenhuis in the fourth. Otherwise, Phillies starter Joe Blanton was solid on the mound until the sixth, when he put two men on then gave up a run-scoring single to Nieuwenhuis. Chad Qualls replaced Blanton after the hit, and gave up a David Wright single that scored two and advanced Wright to third on a throwing error to tie the game at four runs apiece.

Lucas Duda broke the tie with a single off Antonio Bastardo on the next at-bat to give the Mets the lead for good. New York scored again off a Nieuwehuis sac fly and Duda single in the ninth to cap scoring at 7-4.

Manny Acosta earned the win after allowing no hits and no runs in 2/3 innings on the mound in relief of Batista. Qualls was tagged with the loss. Wright and Torres finished the game 2-for-5 at the plate.
