Final Score: Mets 7, Diamondbacks 5—Keep your head up

The Snakes struck back late but New York kept their heads and held on for the win.

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets ran out to a big lead and managed to fend off a comeback from the Diamondbacks, as Noah Syndergaard crushed a home run and notched his first win in six weeks in a 7-5 New York victory.

The Mets built a 7-1 lead with a four-run fifth highlighted by Syndergaard’s two-run homer and a three-run sixth started by a Kelly Johnson homer. New York also got big offensive contributions from T.J. Rivera (4-for-4, two runs), Jose Reyes (2-for-4, triple, walk, run, RBI) and Alejandro De Aza (2-for-4, two doubles, two runs, RBI).

Syndergaard generally pitched well, although Arizona again ran wild on him, stealing five bases. He managed to keep his pitch count down until the sixth, when the Diamondbacks scored three runs with help from three misplays by third baseman Rivera. The second-year hurler was removed with two outs in that inning, leaving two runners on and the tying run at the plate, but Jerry Blevins came on to strike out Michael Bourn to end the threat. Syndergaard finished with eight strikeouts and four runs allowed (two earned) on seven hits and two walks, while Jeurys Familia earned his 40th save with a perfect ninth.
