Torres fills in nicely, Mets beat Phillies
By Mike Fitzpatrick/AP

Carlos Torres did his best Matt Harvey imitation, carrying a two-hit shutout into the seventh inning for the New York Mets in an 11-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday.

Daniel Murphy had four hits, Eric Young Jr. got three and Anthony Recker added a two-run homer on his 30th birthday as the Mets broke loose for their most runs since beating Washington 11-0 in the first game of a July 26 doubleheader.

Torres (3-2) started in place of Harvey, the All-Star ace diagnosed Monday with a partially torn elbow ligament, and gave the Mets everything they could have hoped for in helping them earn a four-game series split.

Three days after making a brief relief appearance, Torres struck out six and walked none in 6 2-3 innings, yielding four hits.
