Walker, Lagares lead Mets to 5-3 win over Phillies
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Neil Walker hit a three-run home run and Juan Lagares also went deep to lead the New York Mets to a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.
Asdrubal Cabrera had three hits for the Mets, who opened the second half of the season by snapping a three-game losing streak. New York won without All-Star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, who missed his third straight game with a right quad strain.
Peter Bourjos had an RBI triple for Philadelphia, which had won 10 of 13 prior to the break.
Bartolo Colon (8-4), one of four Mets chosen for the All-Star game, started out sensational before a rocky sixth inning ended his night early.
Jeurys Familia pitched a scoreless ninth for his 32nd save while extending his club record for consecutive saves to 48, dating back to last Aug. 1.
Jeremy Hellickson (6-7) was roughed up for four runs and seven hits in six innings.
