Mets Crush Phillies
Daniel Murphy had four hits, Eric Young Jr. got three and Anthony Recker added a two-run homer on his 30th birthday as the Mets broke loose for their most runs since beating Washington 11-0 in the first game of a July 26 doubleheader.
Torres (3-2) started in place of Harvey, the All-Star ace diagnosed Monday with a partially torn elbow ligament, and gave the Mets everything they could have hoped for in helping them earn a four-game series split.
Three days after making a brief relief appearance, Torres struck out six and walked none in 6 2-3 innings, yielding four hits.
