Phils finish off Mets in finale
Phillies back Myers' effort
For the third straight game, the Phils let an early lead slip away, but this time they pulled it out as Chase Utley broke a seventh-inning tie with his fourth hit, an RBI double. Ryan Howard and Bobby Abreu went deep to support Brett Myers, who got his first victory since April 23. With the win, Philly trimmed New York's NL East lead to four.

Mets unable to finish sweep
Once again, the Mets stormed back from an earlier deficit, as Jose Reyes tied the game with a three-run long ball in the second inning. However, the hosts weren't able to come back a second time as they dropped the finale. Jeremi Gonzalez allowed three runs in the first, then tossed five shutout innings to keep New York in it.
