Final score: Phillies 5, Mets 4—First extra-inning game comes to an ugly end

The Mets lost the series finale in Philadelphia.

The Mets racked up fourteen hits, two of which were home runs, but wound up losing 5-4 in eleven innings in Philadelphia tonight. Bartolo Colon gave up three runs, struck out four, and walked one in six innings of work. But the Mets were ahead 4-3 by the time he was out of the game.

Those runs scored on an Asdrubal Cabrera double—which was nearly a home run if not for a fan's glove and an ambiguous top of the right field wall—and a wild pitch by Jeremy Hellickson, plus solo home runs from Yoenis Cespedes and Lucas Duda. But the Mets didn't score again, and they gave up a tying run in the seventh and the deciding run in the eleventh.

Full recap.
