Ike Davis had a single, a double and drove in a run for the Mets, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.
Chris Capuano (2-2) allowed four runs and 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings, striking out two without a walk.
"We know that Livan and Pudge are tough and going to keep them in the game," Capuano said. "We were right there. We could have won it in the last inning there. We're playing great. We're swinging the bats great. We continue to do the little things great."
Capuano could only shake his head and admire Hernandez.
"He's got a great feel about pitching out there," Capuano said. "I don't think he breaks a sweat. He's so effortless. He threw me a couple of fastballs, and they seemed to never get there. Late movement, late life on them. Between him and Pudge, you've got a lot of years of experience there."
Drew Storen pitched the ninth for his fourth save in four chances.
NOTES: Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said C Ronny Paulino (anemia) would be activated from the disabled list before Friday night's game in Philadelphia. ... New York's series against the Phillies is its second in Philadelphia this month.
