    Chase Utley #26 of the Philadelphia Phillies turns a double play as Alex Cora #3 of The New York Mets slides in during their game on June 10, 2009 at Citi Field in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

    Chase Utley led off the 11th inning with his second homer of the game, moments after right fielder Jayson Werth saved Philadelphia with a diving catch, and the Phillies beat the New York Mets 5-4 on Wednesday night.

    Utley's third homer in two nights that nestled into the right-field corner at spacious Citi Field came on the second pitch from Bobby Parnell, handing the hard-throwing rookie his first big league loss.

    Philadelphia rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the seventh and dealt the Mets their sixth loss this season after they led by at least three runs.

    Chan Ho Park worked two scoreless innings for the win -- with help from Werth. Subbing for injured closer Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson got three quick outs for his third save.
