Recap: The Mets took the second game of the series from the Phillies in 11 innings, 2-1, on Saturday night.
Need to Know: Lucas Duda’s RBI single with the bases loaded in the top of the 11th inning gave the Mets the victory. Duda scored earlier in the night on a ground ball with the bases loaded in the fifth inning for the Mets’ first run. Phillies third baseman Cody Asche made a diving play on the Wilmer Flores grounder to prevent further damage in the inning. Asche later made another spectacular grab in the ninth to rob Travis d’Arnaud of a possible double down the line. Dillon Gee allowed one run on three hits and three walks over seven innings. Philadelphia’s only run off Gee came on a Carlos Ruiz homer in the seventh to tie the game. David Wright reached base three times with a pair of walks and a single. Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares each had two hits in the victory. Jeurys Familia recorded the save.
Game Ball: Duda, who contributed to both runs scored for the Mets. Although, he might have to share the ball with Gee for his stellar performance.
