NEW YORK (AP) --- Ruben Tejada hit an inside-the-park homer and drove in four
runs to back Matt Harvey as the New York Mets returned to their winning ways
against the Philadelphia Phillies with a 9-4 victory Wednesday night.
Yoenis Cespedes and rookie Michael Conforto had conventional home runs for the
NL East leaders, who won for the 14th time in 16 games against the last-place
Phillies this season. Philadelphia snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Mets
with a 14-8 rout Tuesday.
Travis d'Arnaud doubled twice and singled and Cespedes had three hits as well,
one night after he homered to stop an 0-for-16 slide.
Handed a 6-0 lead, Harvey (12-7) pitched into the seventh inning and won his
fourth straight decision. He was touched up for nine hits, equaling a season
high, and four runs but struck out nine and walked only one.
