NEW YORK— 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.
