Late Offense Sparks Phils

PBR- With both starters having strong outings, the Phillies outlasted the Mets. Cliff Lee threw six innings and gave up three runs, while Dillon Gee threw six and two-thirds giving up only two runs.

Late game bursts in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings produced six runs for the Phillies as they went on to win 10-6.

Jimmy Rollins had three hits, one of which was a homerun in the top of the ninth that drove in three runs and solidified Philadelphia's lead.

Right fielder Lucas Duda drove in two runs for New York on a home run off of Lee in the bottom of the sixth.

The Phillies move to 27-25, helping gain on their division rival Mets.

Tomorrow Kyle Kendrick faces off against Mark Buehrle, as the Phillies travel back to Citizens Bank Park to take on the Miami Marlins.
