The Philadelphia Phillies are struggling. Nowhere was that more evident than at Citizens Bank Ballpark on Wednesday night when the New York Mets battered the home team in a 10-5 win, completing a three-game sweep.
Once again, for the third game in this series, the Mets came from behind for the win. Trailing 4-2 at the top of the seventh, Justin Turner belted a one-run double off Kyle Kendrick. The Phillies reliever then hit pinch hitter Lucas Duda to score the tying run. The wheels came all the way off after that, and Kendrick would allow three more earned runs to give the Mets a big lead.
Cliff Lee struck out six and surrendered two earned runs in his return from the disabled list, giving the Phillies something positive to take away from the game.
Freddy Galvis accounted for three of the Phillies' RBIs, and was a home run short of the cycle in his three-for-four night.
The sweep by the Mets comes on the heels of a series lost to the Nationals over the weekend. Philadelphia managed to win Sunday night's game there. Charlie Manual's team gets a day off on Thursday before starting a three-game home series against the San Diego Padres on Friday.
