John Mayberry Jr. also went deep for Philadelphia and Young had three hits, missing the cycle by a double.

Lee (2-0) allowed three runs — two earned — and eight hits, striking out six in 8 2-3 innings. The 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner didn’t win his second game until July 31 last year.

The Phillies (3-5) roughed up Dillon Gee (0-2) for seven runs and 10 hits in three innings. It was his shortest career outing in 51 starts.

John Buck hit his fourth homer in eight games for the Mets, who fell to 5-3.
