PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 28 (UPI) --
Kelly Shoppach's homer highlighted a four-run outburst in the 10th inning Tuesday that carried the New York Mets past Philadelphia 9-5.
David Wright began the rally with a one-out single against B.J. Rosenberg (0-2) and Ike Davis put the Mets ahead with a double into the left-center field gap that rolled to the wall.
He then came home on Lucas Duda's single and Shoppach capped the uprising by smashing a pitch deep into the left field stands for a two-run homer.
The Mets' catcher earlier had delivered an RBI double with two outs in the eighth to tie the game 5-5, finishing the night 3-for-5 with three RBI.
Mike Baxter also belted a two-run homer for the Mets, who took the opener of a three-game series.
New York's Bobby Parnell (4-3) fired two scoreless frames to record the victory.
Ryan Howard cracked a grand slam and Chase Utley added a solo homer to account for Philadelphia's offense.
