PHILADELPHIA, May 2 (UPI) -- Ronny Paulino's fifth hit of the game drove in the go-ahead run in the 14th inning Sunday, giving the New York Mets a marathon 2-1 win over Philadelphia.

David Wright led off the 14th with a single and went to second one out later when Jason Bay managed another single off Kyle Kendrick (1-2).

Wright (3-for-6, two runs scored) went to third on Ike Davis' deep fly-out and came home when Paulino ripped a double to left, enabling the Mets to salvage one win in a three-game series with the Phillies.

Taylor Buchholz (1-0) tossed a 1-2-3 bottom of the 14th to wrap up the victory for the Mets in a game that lasted 4 hours, 44 minutes.

Mets starter Chris Young hurled seven shutout frames, yielding only two hits, but Tim Byrdak blew a save in the eighth inning when he allowed a game-tying RBI single to Ryan Howard.

Cliff Lee held the Mets to one run over seven innings, surrendering eight hits.
