Recap


Diamondbacks 5, Mets 4: Cody Ransom belted a two-run homer and snapped a tie with an RBI single in the eighth inning as visiting Arizona rallied past New York.

After Paul Goldschmidt tied the contest with a two-run double in the eighth inning, Ransom deposited a slider from Jon Rauch (3-1) into shallow center to plate the eventual winning run.

The rally allowed the Diamondbacks to snap a modest two-game losing skid while handing the Mets their fourth straight loss.

Brad Ziegler (1-1) relieved starter Wade Miley and tossed one scoreless inning to pick up the victory. David Hernandez worked through trouble in the eighth inning and former Met J.J. Putz struck out a pair in the ninth for his sixth save.

Scott Hairston ripped a two-run double and Andres Torres collected three hits - including an RBI single - for the Mets.

Rauch allowed one run on three hits in two-thirds of an inning to suffer the loss.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Prior to the game, Darryl Strawberry presented David Wright with a crystal trophy for becoming the franchise leader in RBIs. ... The Mets honored Adam Yauch by playing music by the Beastie Boys throughout the night. Yauch, who was a founding member of the group, died on Friday. He was 47. ... New York has allowed a home run in nine consecutive contests.
