**Oh, those walks. Phillies pitchers issued 10 last night and six scored in the Mets’ 7–4, 11-inning win.

**Adam Morgan, who had allowed two runs in 26 innings since August 1, was charged with the loss after giving up a 3-run homer in .2 inning.

**Maikel Franco gave the Phillies an early lead with his 23rd homer, most on the club now. 12 of his homers have tied or given the Phillies the lead.

**Freddy Galvis didn’t start but did get to pinch hit. Sunday will be his 162nd game. Last Phillie to play in every game, Ryan Howard, 2008. Two other Phillies shortstops have played in all the games, Larry Bowa (1974) and Jimmy Rollins (2007).
