Mets' Daniel Murphy stays hot, plates go-ahead runs in victory
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mets first baseman Daniel Murphy came through with the biggest hit of the night on Thursday. Murphy, who went 3 for 6 with a run scored and two RBI, snapped a 5-5 tie by smoking a two-run double in the 13th inning. The Mets would go on to beat the Phillies 9-5.

Murphy also made a dazzling play in the field, as he led the charge to the four-game sweep over the Phillies. He has somewhat quietly been on a bit of a tear lately, hitting .366 (15 for 41) with two home runs and 13 RBI over his last nine games.

Mets' Kelly Johnson belts game-tying home run on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mets second baseman Kelly Johnson had one hit in six at-bats on Thursday against the Phillies, but it was a key hit. Johnson launched a game-tying, solo home run in the fifth inning, knotting the score up at 5-5. The Mets would go on to win the game 9-5 in 13 innings.

The home run was Johnson's third since coming over in a trade at the end of July. He has been mired in a bit of a slump recently, as he was 6 for his last 24 coming into play on Thursday.

Yoenis Cespedes keeps on rolling for Mets
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes stayed red-hot at the plate on Thursday, as he connected on a two-run home run in the 9-5 win over the Phillies. Cespedes' home run came in the fifth inning, as the Mets stormed back to erase a five-run deficit.

The home run was Cespdes' only hit of the night, but it was his eighth longball since coming to the Mets at the July 31 trade deadline. Perhaps even more impressively, over his last eight games, Cespedes is batting .350 with six home runs and 15 RBI. He has certainly been a catalyst for the Mets' recent upswing.

Mets RP Carlos Torres does it all in victory on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Right-handed reliever Carlos Torres was one of the heroes of the game for the Mets, as they went on to beat the Phillies 9-5 in 13 innings on Thursday. Torres shined with his arm, his glove, his bat and his speed in this one.

On the mound, Torres tossed 2 1/3 scoreless ball, allowing just one hit. He also made a couple of athletic plays, including a sprint to first base to beat Jeff Francoeur on a deflected ground ball.

At the plate, Torres reached on an infield single and scored the Mets' go-ahead run in the 13th, as he picked up his fifth win of the season. Overall, it was an impressive evening for the right-hander, as the Mets completed the four-game sweep of the Phillies.

Mets SP Jonathon Niese gives up five, gets no-decision Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mets starter Jonathon Niese had a rough outing on Thursday, but he was bailed out by his offense in the 9-5 win over the Phillies. Niese endured one bad inning, as all five runs the Phillies would score came in the third inning.

Niese, who got the no-decision on Thursday, allowed five runs on five hits over six innings. He walked five and struck out five, throwing 57 of his 103 pitches for strikes. 

Niese has now struggled in back-to-back starts, but the Mets' explosive offense has gotten him off the hook in both outings. 

Overall, in five August starts, Niese went 3-0 with a 5.18 ERA.
