PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Lucas Duda hit a three-run double in the Mets’ five-run seventh inning, and New York snapped the Philadelphia Phillies’ 11-game winning streak with a 5-2 win on Saturday night.

The NL East-leading Phillies missed out on a chance to clinch a fourth straight playoff berth — all they need is one win or Atlanta loss and they’re in — with their first defeat since Sept. 11 in New York. Philadelphia’s magic number to secure it’s fourth division title in a row is two.

Rookie Dillon Gee (2-1), making his fourth big league start, limited the Phillies to two runs on five hits in seven innings, helping the Mets end a season-high six-game losing streak.

Hisanori Takahashi worked the ninth for his eighth save in eight chances.
