The Phillies and Mets committed five recorded errors, but the most damning miscues occured in the top of the ninth as the Phils staged a three-run rally off closer Francisco Rodriguez to steal away a 6-4 victory.
The Phils scratched their way through three blunders, including a rare miscommunication between Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley on a pop fly that led to an unearned run charged to Roy Oswalt, who allowed another run before exiting after six controlled innings. Offensively, the Phils received a coupe of key hits from Domonic Brown off the bench; Brown is suddenly hitting .250. Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-4 with three knocks; Rollins has been swinging the bat well lately, and generally, the Phils' offense is getting some better cuts at the ball on this three-game winning streak. Ryan Madson overcame a bumpy ninth for his 10th save. More tomorrow ..
