Hoping to stay in race, Phillies host Mets

NEW YORK -- The third time was the charm Tuesday night for the Philadelphia Phillies, who finally earned a win on a night in which the Atlanta Braves lost.

The Phillies will look to continue a last-ditch attempt to get back into the National League East race Wednesday night when they host the New York Mets in the finale of a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies evened the series Tuesday night when Jorge Alfaro's three-run homer capped a five-run sixth inning in a 5-2 victory. The win, coupled with the Braves' 8-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, pulled Philadelphia within 5 1/2 games of first-place Atlanta, which has a magic number of seven for winning the division.
