Mets pummel Phils behind Murph, Wheeler

NEW YORK (AP) — Daniel Murphy hit a three-run homer to back up Zack Wheeler’s sixth straight strong start, and the New York Mets routed the Philadelphia Phillies 11-2 on Wednesday afternoon.

The Mets sent 10 men to the plate in the seventh inning, scoring five insurance runs off the Philadelphia bullpen to take two of three in the series.

Wheeler (6-8) gave up two runs and seven hits with four strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander has allowed two runs or fewer in six outings in a row.

After the Phillies went up 1-0 in the top of the fifth, New York quickly responded — with Wheeler helping himself at the plate.
