NEW YORK, July 20 (UPI) -- Juan Lagares went 3-for-4 with an RBI Saturday and the New York Mets turned back Philadelphia's ninth-inning rally to get past the Phillies 5-4.

Lagares provided a run-scoring single in the first inning, when the Mets sent eight batters to the plate and built a 3-1 lead.

Daniel Murphy added two hits -- including an RBI single in the seventh that gave New York a 5-2 lead -- while David Wright and Anthony Recker each drove in a run for New York.

Gonzalez Germen (1-1) earned the decision with 1 2/3 scoreless innings in relief of Mets' starter Zack Wheeler.

Closer Bobby Parnell surrendered a two-run homer to Chase Utley and a two-out double to Domonic Brown in the ninth, but induced Darin Ruf to line out, ending the game with his 18th save as the Mets evened their three-game series.

Cole Hamels (4-12) was hung with the loss after allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings.

Utley finished with three RBI for the Phillies.
