Despite replay recall, Mets blank Phillies again

NEW YORK (AP) - August 13, 2010

The Mets blanked the high-scoring Phillies for the fourth straight time at home. New York outscored their NL East rivals 16-0 during a three-game sweep in late May, a string started by Dickey.

David Wright and Carlos Beltran hit consecutive doubles with two outs in the sixth for the lone run. Despite having Mike Hessman lose a home run on a video replay reversal, the Mets posted their first two-game winning streak since June 22-23.

Hit hard by the Phillies in his last start, Dickey (8-5) baffled them all evening this time, striking out seven and walking one.

Mike Hessman of the New York Mets has lost a home run after a lengthy video replay review at Citi Field.

Hessman circled the bases after his long drive in the fifth inning of Friday night's game against Philadelphia. Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez argued right away, saying a fan had reached over the railing above the wall and interfered with the ball.

Three umpires went to look at the replay, came back after more than six minutes and huddled again on the field. The umps then put Hessman on third base with his first major league triple.

Phillies starter Cole Hamels warmed up during the delay. In all, it took more than 10 minutes between pitches.

Hessman was left stranded at third and the game was scoreless.
