•According to the Elias Sports Bureau, shortstop Jose Reyes collected his 69th and 70th hits of 2011 in the Mets' 50th game of the season to tie the franchise record for most hits in the team's first 50 games (Lance Johnson, 1996).

Reyes also scored a career-best three runs for the 22nd time in his career, and first time since Sept. 14, 2010 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Mets fell to 17-5 when Reyes scores at least three runs in a game.

•First baseman Daniel Murphy extended his hitting streak to seven games with a fourth-inning single. It is tied for the third-longest streak of his career. Murphy is hitting .370 during his run, which dates back to May 20.

The Mets fell to 18-2 when leading after seven innings. The Phillies improved to 13-3 against left-handed starters this season.

•Pinch-hitter Willie Harris appeared to be laboring a bit when he ran out a ground ball to first in the sixth inning. Harris was pinch-hitting for southpaw Chris Capuano. The Mets did not have any information on the potential injury after the game.
