Oliver Perez went six strong innings giving up only one run on five hits and three walks. He certainly wasn’t as dominating as he had been in his last few starts, but he was good enough to get the win and raise his record to 7-6.
Jose Reyes was 3 for 5, including getting thrown out at third going for a triple in the first at-bat of the game.
Nick Evans was 2 for 4 and scored the first two runs of the game. It looked like two runs would be all the Mets would need until the eighth inning. Carlos Delgado hit his 23rd homer to add two more insurance runs.
The Phillies also won so the NL East lead remains .5 games.
