Mets lose again in Philly

Gabe Kapler loved what happened Monday, but he wanted to see what happened Tuesday, too.

Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco showed the manager what he wanted to see. He launched a go-ahead two-run home run to right field in the sixth inning of a 7-5 victory over the Mets at Citizens Bank Park, giving the Phillies consecutive wins for the first time since a four-game winning streak from June 4-8. Franco had a remarkable first month of the season, hitting seven home runs and posting a .902 OPS through April 27. But he lost significant playing time the past couple weeks as he struggled, hitting two homers with a .445 OPS from April 28 through Sunday.
