NEW YORK, April 10 (UPI) -- Angel Pagan
singled in Jose Reyes
with two out in the 12th inning Thursday, giving the New York Mets a 4-3 win over Philadelphia.
Tom Gordon (0-2), working his second inning of the game, retired the first two batters in the 12th before Reyes doubled to center.
Pagan then lined a shot that bounced off the mound and up the middle. The throw home by centerfielder Jayson Werth was on target, but Reyes just beat the tag.
The call brought a lengthy dispute from catcher Chris Coste and Philadelphia Manager Charlie Manuel.
Jorge Sosa (1-0) got the final out in the top of the 12th for the win. Starter John Maine, who has won all four of his decisions against the Phillies, allowed one run on five hits over six innings.
Philadelphia rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the late innings thanks in part to solo homers by Pedro Feliz and Ryan Howard.
