NEW YORK (AP) — Wilmer Flores singled home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning for his second huge hit in two days, giving the New York Mets a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.
The Mets pulled it out after Jacob deGrom and the bullpen blew a three-run lead in the eighth, improving to 19-6 at home this season. They have won seven consecutive series against the Phillies, beating their NL East rivals 19 times in the past 24 meetings.
Juan Lagares led off the 10th with a single against Jeanmar Gomez (0-1) before Elvis Araujo walked Lucas Duda. Daniel Murphy grounded into a double play, but Michael Cuddyer walked and Flores lined a single over shortstop.
