Philadelphia had lost six straight. Manager Larry Bowa voiced his frustration clearly and loudly. Now they've won two in a row. Randy Wolf tossed seven innings, scattering six hits and two runs as the Phillies took the second consecutive game from the New York Mets 4-2 on Saturday evening inside Shea Stadium.

Philadelphia (72-63) came back to knot the score back up in the fifth against Tom Glavine (9-12). With one out, Jimmy Rollins singled and moved up to second on Tomas Perez's groundout. A single by Randy Wolf and a triple by young centerfielder Marlon Byrd drove home two.
RBI singles by Mike Lieberthal and Jason Michaels in the top of seventh accounted for the final two runs.
Tom Glavine -- who allowed two hits and one run over seven innings in Los Angeles last Sunday and hasn't lost since July 24 -- pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing eleven hits and four runs while walking one and fanning five.
