Mets End 5-game skid, Rally Past Phils 5-4

The New York Mets suddenly rallied for three runs in the ninth inning against Philadelphia’s improvised bullpen, then ended a five-game skid by beating the Phillies 5-4 Sunday on Ruben Tejada’s single in the 11th.

Down 4-1, the punchless Mets fought back in the ninth, sparked by Daniel Murphy’s two-run homer. They did it while Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg held out closer Jonathan Papelbon, rather than use him for a third straight day.

In the 11th, Chris Young opened with an infield single, barely beating the flip from second baseman Chase Utley’s glove. The Mets sent up pitcher Zack Wheeler as a pinch-hitter, and he put down a perfect sacrifice bunt that moved Young to second.

Juan Lagares drew an intentional walk and Anthony Recker loaded with the bases with another infield hit stopped by diving third baseman Reid Brignac.
