PHILADELPHIA -- For the fourth time in as many games, things got interesting between the Mets and Phillies in the final inning of the Mets' 5-3 win on Monday.

In the bottom of the ninth in Monday's series finale, Chase Utley appeared to hit a home run off Mets reliever Jeurys Familia with two outs and a runner on a second base that would have brought the score to 5-4.

Mets manager Terry Collins immediately came out to challenge the home-run ruling, citing fan interference. After a one-minute and 50-second review, replay revealed that a fan had reached over the right field wall and scooped the ball with his hat, and the call was overturned.

Utley settled for an RBI ground-rule double, but the game ended when the next batter, Ben Revere, flied out to center field.
