NEW YORK (AP) _ Marlon Byrd sliced an RBI double just inside the right field line in the 11th inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 3-2 Friday night in a game of many squandered opportunities.

Chase Utley had three hits and scored all the Phillies’ runs, two on singles by Domonic Brown, to help Philadelphia end a four-game skid and beat the Mets for the first time in six meetings.

Carlos Torres (2-2), the Mets’ seventh pitcher, gave up a one-out double to Utley and intentionally walked Ryan Howard. Byrd, who played for the Mets last season, reached low and away to send an opposite-field liner inside the foul line to score Utley.

The Phillies left the bases loaded, only fitting as the teams combined to strand 32 runners in a game that took 4 hours, 39 minutes.

Jonathan Papelbon earned his 10th save. Mario Hollands (1-1) got the win.
