N.Y. Mets (53-61)«000200020490
Arizona (59-56)0000001001110

W: Z. Wheeler (5-2) L: B. McCarthy (2-6) S: L. Hawkins (3)
HR: NYM - J. Lagares (3)   ARI - A. Hill (6)


Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with three RBI to lead the New York Mets to a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the middle portion of a three-game series at Chase Field.

Juan Lagares hit a solo homer and scored twice and Ike Davis went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored for the Mets, winners in four of their last five games.

Zack Wheeler (5-2) gave up one run -- a solo homer -- and six hits over 6 1/3 innings to earn the win. The rookie struck out four without issuing a walk to improve to 4-0 over six road starts.

"I was just trying to throw strikes and get ahead of guys," Wheeler remarked. "That was the main point tonight."

LaTroy Hawkins stranded a runner on second in the ninth to notch his third save.

Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with a solo homer for the D-backs, who had won three straight entering the contest.

Brandon McCarthy (2-6) was pegged with the loss after giving up two runs on six hits over seven innings. McCarthy is 0-2 since returning from the disabled list on Sunday.

"He gave us seven innings, two runs, and gave us a chance to win the game," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said of his starter.

The Mets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning. Lagares opened the frame with a homer to right-center. Later in the frame, Davis ripped a two-run double to left then scored on Flores' base hit to right field.

Hill's leadoff homer in the seventh made it 2-1, but the Mets answered with a pair of runs in the eighth to go up 4-1.

With the bases loaded and two outs, Flores stroked a single to left to score Eric Young and Lagares.

Arizona loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth inning, but Gerardo Parra was caught looking to end the threat.

Game Notes

New York is just 3-6 over its last nine road games ... The Mets were 2-for-8 with runners in scoring position ... Lagares also had a stolen base ... Arizona was 0-for-5 with RISP ... Saturday was Paul Goldschmidt bobblehead night. The All-Star first baseman went 1-for-4 ... Game time: 3:01
