Recap: Philadelphia vs. NY Mets

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - R.A. Dickey tossed seven innings of one- run ball, Jason Bay smacked a two-run homer and the New York Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-2, on Friday in the opener of a three-game set.

Dickey (2-0) allowed nine hits and one walk while striking out seven for the Mets, who snapped a two-game skid after opening the season with four straight wins.

Cliff Lee (0-1) gave up four runs -- three in the first inning -- on five hits while fanning seven in seven innings for Philadelphia, which managed to score just two runs despite registering 11 hits.

Jimmy Rollins had three hits and Freddy Galvis got his first big league home run, a leadoff shot in the bottom of the third in the loss.

Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy led off the game with back-to-back doubles and three batters later, Jason Bay smacked a two-run homer into right-center field to give the Mets a quick 3-0 lead.

"I wish I could have back the pitch to Bay. It was a bad pitch down the middle," Lee said, adding, "Other than that, I felt pretty good. I wish I could've kept the ball in the ballpark."

Philadelphia recorded an unusual double play in New York's next at-bat in the second. With one out, Dickey successfully moved Josh Thole to second with a sacrifice bunt down the first-base line, but Thole began to trot back to first thinking the ball was foul and he was subsequently tagged out.

"[Thole] owned it completely. He thought it was a foul ball, obviously. I'm glad we can laugh about it now," said Dickey.

Galvis launched a high, towering shot that reached the seats in right field to pull Philadelphia within 3-1 after three frames.

Scott Hairston drilled a solo shot to left field in the visitor's fifth for a 4-1 Mets advantage, and New York added an insurance run in the ninth on Lucas Duda's sacrifice fly to left field, which brought home Justin Turner.

Carlos Ruiz crossed the plate in the bottom of the ninth after Daniel Murphy committed a fielding error at second on Juan Pierre's grounder.
