    Ben Lively homered and drove in four runs off Mets ace Jacob deGrom, and also pitched seven strong innings to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over New York 9-1 Tuesday night.

    A day after falling behind the Mets 10-0 by the fourth inning, it was the Phillies' turn to answer back.

    DeGrom (14-9) struck out the side in the first, but wound up allowing a career-worst nine runs - six of them earned - and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings.

    Lively (3-5) hit a two-run single in the second that made it 3-1. The rookie, who homered in his last start against Miami, hit a two-run drive in a six-run fourth.

    Lively is 6 for 21 (.286) with two home runs and eight RBIs in his first major league season.

    The 25-year-old righty allowed one run and four hits.

    Odubel Herrera extended his hitting streak to 19 games and Nick Williams drove in three runs for Philadelphia. Highly touted Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford got a hit in his first big league game.
