Bullpen implodes as Mets complete sweep of Phils

PBR - The Phillies' bullpen surrendered seven runs over three innings as the Mets completed a three-game sweep with a 10-6 win Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies carried a 4-2 lead before things fell apart in the seventh. Kyle Kendrick faced nine batters in relief and allowed seven to reach base, allowing five runs on four hits and a pair of walks.

Ike Davis collected two hits for the Mets, including a three-run home run in the eighth off Jose Contreras that almost landed in the second deck, essentially sealing the series sweep.

Cliff Lee tossed six solid innings, surrendering two runs on six hits.

Freddy Galvis finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs in the losing effort, falling a homer short of the cycle.

"Our bullpen got hit and it got real ugly," Charlie Manuel said. "We did quite a few things wrong if you watched the game."

NOTE

The Phillies' bullpen pitched 7 1/3 innings in the three-game set, amassing a 14.73 ERA.
