 NEW YORK (AP) - Philadelphia's Cliff Lee outpitched Zack Wheeler after the Mets learned All-Star starter Matt Harvey has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, Cody Asche had a two-run triple, and the Phillies beat New York 2-1 Monday night.
Lee (11-3) gave a bullpen taxed by an 18-inning loss Saturday a much-needed rest. He allowed a run and five hits in eight innings to win for the first time in seven starts since July 5.
Asche hit his first major league triple - with two outs in the fourth - as the Phillies improved to 7-4 under new manager Ryne Sandberg and won for the second time in 15 road games.
The Mets lost their fifth straight and dropped into fourth place in the NL East.
Jonathan Papelbon was perfect in the ninth for his 22nd save in 28 opportunities.
Wheeler (6-3) worked 6 2-3 impressive innings in his 13th big league start. New York lost for just the second time in his last 10 outings. The rising star gave up two runs and five hits, and threw 105 pitches.
CARDINALS 8, REDS 6
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Allen Craig hit his first career grand slam with two outs in the seventh inning, helping St. Louis rally to beat Cincinnati.
Matt Holliday also had a long three-run homer as St. Louis moved into sole possession of first place in the NL Central for the first time since July 29. The Cardinals lead idle Pittsburgh by a half-game and Cincinnati by 3 1/2 games.
Rookie Carlos Martinez (1-1) pitched two innings for his first major league win, and Edward Mujica worked a perfect ninth for his 35th save.
Zack Cozart had two hits and three RBIs for the Reds, who dropped to 4-9 against St. Louis this season. Jay Bruce hit his 25th homer in the eighth.
Cozart and Todd Frazier both hit two-run triples off Tyler Lyons in the second, helping Cincinnati build a 4-0 lead. Holliday homered in the third.
The Cardinals went ahead to stay in the seventh. Jon Jay drove in a run with a bases-loaded grounder off Manny Parra (1-3). J.J. Hoover then walked Holliday, and Craig drove the next pitch over the wall in right for his 13th homer.
