Mets 10, Phillies 6

Published May 10, 2012

PHILADELPHIA — The Mets took advantage of every Phillies mistake and finished off a surprising sweep.

Ike Davis hit a three-run homer, Andres Torres also connected and New York won 10-6 Wednesday night to complete its first three-game sweep in Philadelphia in six years.

The Mets rallied in all three. They trailed after five innings Monday, after six Tuesday and after six against Cliff Lee in the series finale.

"It's nice to come from behind and steal a few and we stole three in this series," David Wright said.

The five-time defending NL East champions are a season-worst four games under .500 at 14-18. The Mets (18-13) are five games above for the first time since July 19, 2010.

The loss prompted manager Charlie Manuel to address his team after the game. "Usually, I stay pretty cool," he said. "But (Wednesday), I felt I needed to talk to the guys."
