NEW YORK, April 27 (UPI) -- Domonic Brown and John Mayberry bashed back-to-back homers Saturday and the Philadelphia Phillies banged out 12 hits in their 9-4 win over the New York Mets.

Brown's three-run blast in the fifth inning was immediately followed by Mayberry's solo shot as the Phillies scored five time to break the contest open.

Ryan Howard contributed a pair of RBI and Michael Young went 3-for-4 with two runs scored for Philadelphia, which clinched its three-game road series.

Rookie right-hander Jonathan Pettibone (1-0) collected his first major-league win, surrendering three runs on seven hits over five innings.

Mets starter Shaun Marcum (0-1) went four full innings in making his first start of the season following a stint on the disables list with a neck strain. He was touched for three runs on five hits.

John Buck cracked his eighth homer of the year for New York.
