It's a sweep. For the third game in a row, the New York Mets rallied to beat their division rivals, the Philadelphia Phillies. Eight runs in the final three innings erased a two-run deficit and gave the Mets a 10-6 win over the Phillies, completing a three-game sweep at Citizens Bank Ballpark in Philadelphia.
Justin Turner started the rally in the seventh with a one-run double. The Mets inched their way to two more runs in that inning to put them on top. Ike Davis capped off the fireworks in a four-run eighth inning with a two-run deep shot to right field.
All they had to do was wait out Cliff Lee, who pitched six sharp innings, allowing just two runs, in his first game back from the disabled list.
New York's bats bailed out starter Dillon Gee who surrendered four runs on 10 hits through five and two-thirds innings.
Wednesday night's win makes it five in a row for the Mets, who continue NL East play on Friday with a trip to Miami.
