Mets 5, Phillies 3

PHILADELPHIA — Anthony Recker hit a tiebreaking three-run homer and Jonathon Niese pitched seven sharp innings for the Mets. Recker was in an 0-for-18 skid when he connected off reliever Justin De Fratus, who had retired 17 straight before allowing a single to the first batter he faced after replacing David Buchanan in the seventh. "It felt great. I needed it real bad," Recker said.
