Wright, Harvey lead Mets to 8-0 rout of Phillies

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- David Wright homered, tripled and matched a
New York Mets record with four extra-base hits to back the
latest splendid start by Matt Harvey in an 8-0 victory over the
Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

Wright went 4 for 5 with two of New York's season-high seven
doubles to help the Mets take two of three in Philadelphia after
winning a five-game series at first-place Atlanta.

With the team making a major marketing push to get Wright
elected to start next month's All-Star game at Citi Field, the
third baseman is batting .405 with 14 extra-base hits in his
last 17 games.

Given a rare heaping of run support, Harvey (7-1) allowed two
hits in six innings and struck out six to earn consecutive wins
for the first time since mid-April.

The 24-year-old right-hander tossed four perfect innings and
threw a season-low 72 pitches - his outing was cut short by a
20-minute rain delay in the seventh.

Harvey also hit an RBI double to deep right-center and scored in
a three-run fifth that made it 4-0. Later, he hit a line drive
that knocked reliever Joe Savery's glove off his hand but was
thrown out at first.

Harvey became the first Mets starter to win twice in one season
at Citizens Bank Park.

Wright hit his 12th home run in the ninth and finished a single
shy of the cycle. The club said the previous Mets player to have
four extra-base hits in a game was Edgardo Alfonzo on Aug. 30,
1999, at Houston.

New leadoff batter Eric Young Jr. had three hits and scored

Philadelphia's only threat against Harvey came in the fourth,
when Chase Utley hit a leadoff double and Ryan Howard worked a
one-out walk. But Harvey got out of the jam by striking out
Domonic Brown on a 99 mph fastball and retiring Delmon Young on
a grounder.

New York opened the scoring in the first when Marlon Byrd drove
in Young with a sacrifice fly.

In the fifth, Harvey helped himself by hitting the first of
three RBI doubles for the Mets. Juan Lagares led off the inning
with what appeared to be an easy fly to center, but Ben Revere
fumbled the ball in the exchange from his glove to his bare hand
and it was ruled it a three-base error, opening the door for New

The Mets added two more in the sixth. Josh Satin and John Buck
drew back-to-back walks before Lagares chased Phillies starter
John Lannan (0-2) with an RBI double. Buck scored on Omar
Quintanilla's sacrifice fly to make it 6-0.

Byrd hit an RBI double in the seventh after Wright's triple.

Mets relievers LaTroy Hawkins and Brandon Lyon closed it out,
handing the Phillies their seventh shutout of the season.

NOTES: Harvey is 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA in four career starts
against Philadelphia. ... The Mets beat the Phillies for the
third time in their last 13 meetings. ... Revere went 0 for 3,
ending his 12-game hitting streak. ... Phillies reliever J.C.
Ramirez struck out the side in order in the eighth in his major
league debut. ... Over the last eight games, the Mets' bullpen
has limited opponents to two earned runs in 27 innings (0.67
ERA). ... The Phillies embark on a 10-game road trip beginning
with a three-game series in San Diego on Monday, when Cliff Lee
takes the mound. ... The Mets are off Monday before starting a
two-game set with the White Sox in Chicago on Tuesday, when top
prospect Zack Wheeler will make his second big league start.
