NEW YORK -- Jay Bruce accounted for all five New York Mets runs Wednesday night when his second homer -- a two-run shot in the eighth inning -- broke a tie and lifted the Mets to a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field.

The Mets trailed 2-0 before Bruce hit a three-run homer off Vince Velasquez in the bottom of the sixth. Two innings later, Yoenis Cespedes delivered a leadoff single against Edubray Ramos (0-2) before Bruce hit Ramos' next pitch just beyond the right field fence.

The five RBIs tied a career high for Bruce, who also doubled in the first inning and was robbed of a potential RBI when Cespedes was thrown out at home trying to score from first base.

Hansel Robles (3-0) got the final out of the eighth and Addison Reed posted his fourth save despite allowing a run in the ninth as the Mets (8-7) snapped a four-game losing streak.

The win may have been costly for the Mets, who lost first baseman Lucas Duda (hyperextended left elbow) and Travis d'Arnaud (right wrist contusion) to injuries suffered in a two-batter span in the top of the fifth inning.

Maikel Franco had an RBI groundout in the fourth and pitcher Vince Velasquez delivered a run-scoring single in the fifth for the Phillies (5-9), who have lost six of eight.

Michael Saunders had two hits, including a game-tying RBI single in the eighth, and Freddy Galvis tripled with one out in the ninth and scored on pinch-hitter Daniel Nava's sacrifice fly.

Mets right-hander Robert Gsellman allowed the three runs, six hits and one walk while striking out seven in seven-plus innings.

Velasquez gave up three runs, five hits and three walks while striking out two in six innings.

NOTES: The Phillies recalled RHP Ben Lively from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and placed RHP Pat Neshek on the paternity leave list. Neshek can be away from the team for up to three days to be with his wife, who is giving birth to the couple's second child. ... Two injured Mets pitchers, LHP Steven Matz and RHP Seth Lugo, each began throwing programs at the team's spring training complex on Wednesday. Both hurlers are sidelined by elbow ailments.
