NEW YORK (AP) — Jacob deGrom pitched seven crisp innings and the Mets scored the tiebreaking runs when left fielder Grady Sizemore dropped an easy pop fly, handing New York a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.

Eric Campbell stole home on a double steal, and Travis d’Arnaud hit an RBI single to help the Mets stay out of the NL East cellar with their 12th victory in 17 games against Philadelphia this year.

Cody Asche had a run-scoring single for the Phillies, who had won four straight and six of seven. A victory in the series opener would have pushed last-place Philadelphia past New York, but Sizemore’s two-out error with the bases loaded in the seventh cost them.

In a matchup of rookie right-handers, deGrom (7-6) allowed four hits and an unearned run. He struck out five and walked two in his second start since coming off the disabled list.
