Philadelphia, PA – Home runs by Shane Victorino and John 4 victory over the Mets.
Philadelphia got another good start from rookie Vance Worley, who escaped two early jams with strikeouts. Worley (9-1) went on to post a career-high nine while giving up just one run in seven innings, and also drove in a run.
The Phillies have won each of his last 12 starts, the longest stretch for the team this season and the longest for any MLB rookie since 1986, when Texas won 12 consecutive starts by Bobby Witt.
Philadelphia won his outing Tuesday thanks to several bursts of offense. After Victorino's solo blast and Mayberry's three-run shot, the home team added one run in the fourth and four in the fifth.
As the runs piled up for the Phillies, the miscues piled up for the Mets. A few times, the two coincided -- like in the fifth inning, when Mets center fielder Angel Pagan misjudged a fly ball by Victorino, having it fly over his head for a two-run triple.
That's just how things are going for the Phillies and Mets these days. NL East-leading Philadelphia has outscored New York 19-4 in the first two games of this set, and has won each of the four series so far this season. Meanwhile, the Mets fell to 2-11 in their last 13 games.
