Phillies Vs. Mets Final Score: Ryan Howard Comes Up Big In 3-2 Win

The Philadelphia Phillies continue to keep their playoff hopes alive with a 3-2 victory at Citi Field against the New York Mets on Wednesday night.

Trailing 2-1 in the ninth inning, the Phillies rallied for two runs to take the lead. With Chase Utley aboard, Ryan Howard stepped up the plate and crushed one over the fence, giving Philadelphia an advantage it wouldn't relinquish.

Cole Hamels was on the mound for Charlie Manuel's club and was absolutely dominant. Over six innings, Hamels only allowed two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out 10.

The southpaw was given some run support right away off the bat of Jimmy Rollins, who hit a lead-off home run for his 22nd blast of the year.

The Phillies only had three hits on the evening, but made them count. In what was Matt Harvey's final start of the year, the rookie surrendered just one run in seven innings just one hit, the opening blast by Rollins.
