It's Highly AddictiveTRDMB is pleased to welcome a new sponsor for the post game wrap, just for this 3 game series versus the Philadelphia Phillies.   Slurm soft drink.   It's highly addictive.At least for one night, the home run was a reality at Citi Field.   7 times.   The Philadelphia Phillies made themselves at home in two ways:   they hit 4 home runs, and they lost the game.   The New York Mets added 3 home runs of their own and held on to win 6-5.It was not one of Johan Santana's (8-3) best starts, but he pitched into the 8th inning, leaving after giving up a lead off home run to Chase Utley (13).   Bobby Parnell replaced him and allowed a single to Jayson Werth, the only batter he would face.   Pedro Feliciano came on and induced Ryan Howard to ground into a 4-6-3 double play, then got Raul Ibanez to ground out to 2nd to end the inning.   Francisco Rodriguez allowed a lead off single to Jimmy Rollins in the 9th but held on to record his 16th save in 16 opportunities, firmly grasping the baton of NL East closer perfection that Brad Lidge dropped on his way to the disabled list.Carlos belted oneThe Mets got the early lead when David Wright hit a solo homer (4) in the 2nd inning, his first in 100 at bats, then extended the lead to 3-0 on a Carlos Beltran 2-run homer (8) in the 3rd.   The Phillies announced that they would not go quietly into the night in the top of the 4th on back-to-back solo home runs by Howard (18) and Ibanez (20), then took the lead in the 6th on a 2-run homer by Rollins (4).Best served coldThe Mets ruined dessert throughout metropolitan Philadelphia by regaining the lead in the bottom of the 6th, sending 8 batters to the plate and scoring twice on an RBI double by Santana and an Alex Cora RBI single.   A solo home run by Ryan Church (2) in the bottom of the 7th inning capped the Mets scoring, and proved to be a valuable insurance run when Utley's 8th inning shot cut the lead to 1 run.Box score courtesy
