Mets Overcome Early Deficit to Edge Phillies
Juan Lagares hit a go-ahead double, Jeremy Hefner pitched six effective innings and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Friday night.
Hefner (2-6) gave up three runs — two earned — and 10 hits to help the Mets snap a five-game losing streak against the Phillies.
Eric Young Jr. had two hits, including a two-run single for the Mets, who have won three of four. Scott Rice and Carlos Torres each tossed a hitless inning and Bobby Parnell finished for his 12th save in 15 tries.
Cole Hamels (2-11) blew a 3-0 lead in another disappointing outing for the three-time All-Star. He allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings.
