NEW YORK -- Pat Burrell had another big game against the New York Mets. Plenty of hitters are having big games against Tom Glavine this season.
Burrell hit a three-run homer off the struggling lefty, and Bobby Abreu had four RBIs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 10-3 rout Tuesday night.
Brett Myers struck out 10 in seven sharp innings for the last-place Phillies, who busted out on offense after putting All-Star slugger Jim Thome and speedy center fielder Kenny Lofton on the disabled list earlier in the day.
"It's huge," Burrell said. "Thome's not going to be here for however long. We've still got to keep grinding. It's a team effort, it's never just one guy."
Philadelphia, which entered ranked 15th out of 16 NL teams in slugging percentage (.363), won for only the fifth time in 14 games.
Cliff Floyd was the lone bright spot for the Mets, connecting for his seventh home run to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 19 games - longest in the majors this year.
New York looked tired after winning a night game Sunday in Washington, then waiting out a rain delay of 2 hours, 17 minutes before Pedro Martinez beat the Phillies 5-1 Monday night.
Glavine wasn't nearly as effective.
"Obviously, something's not going the way I want when I'm delivering the ball," he said. "When everything is right, it's easy to trust yourself. When it's not, it's a little bit tougher."
The Mets pulled a handful of regulars after the seventh, leaving the Shea Stadium crowd of 17,051 with little to do but cheer leadoff hitter Jose Reyes' first walk of the season, which forced home a run in the ninth.
Myers (2-1) allowed just four hits and walked one, throwing 73 of 108 pitches for strikes in his latest impressive performance. Off to a terrific start in his third full season, he has given up only six earned runs in six outings for a 1.34 ERA.
"I'm just trying to stay on an even keel," Myers said. "If I get the opportunities for strikeouts, I just go for it."
Glavine (1-4) walked six in 3 2/3 innings, allowing eight runs - seven earned -- and six hits. The two-time Cy Young Award winner has walked 22 batters in 30 2/3 innings this season. He has given up 14 earned runs in his last two starts, bumping his ERA to an unsightly 7.04.
"If I don't command and control the outside part of the plate with my sinker and changeup, then I'm not going to be successful," Glavine said. "In this game you can't make pitches once in a while, you've got to make them all the time."
Glavine is 24-15 lifetime against the Phillies, but he hasn't beaten them since joining the Mets in 2003.
"I believe we're just more patient and we're going the other way, that's why we're having success against him," Abreu said.
Jimmy Rollins doubled to open the game, and Abreu walked one out later. Burrell then sent a 3-2 pitch over the left-field bleachers and into Philadelphia's bullpen for his sixth homer of the season.
It was his 27th career homer against the Mets. He also has 73 RBI against New York since his major league debut in 2000.
"I've always liked playing here, I don't know what it is. I can't explain it," Burrell said.
Abreu added a two-run single in the second and a two-run single in the fourth. David Bell and Tomas Perez each had an RBI single.
