Herrmann's homer lifts D-backs 5-4, Mets' 7th straight loss

And the sweep they would get.

Also for the Diamondbacks, Jake Lamb hit a two-run homer and drew two walks. Greinke (4-2, 2.79 ERA) is 3-0 with 38 strikeouts over his past four starts.

The point of concern for the Mets comes back to relief pitching.

It went down as another comeback victory for the D-backs, their second in as many games and the 16th of the season.

The RBI continued a torrid stretch by Tomas against the Mets as he's hit.356 with six home runs and 15 RBIs in 12 career games against NY.

The Tomas hit took starter Patrick Corbin off the hook. The Mets were forced to make a decision and with the pressure on, the infielders seemed to hesitate and that allowed Goldschmidt to sneak in with a tack on run. Corbin's first clean inning was his last. He showed signs of improvement, giving up three earned runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out six.

Mets: In the series finale Wednesday afternoon, RHP Matt Harvey returns to the mound where he made his major league debut in July 2012.

The D-backs tagged Harvey, making his second start since a team-imposed three-game suspension, for three runs on six hits plus four walks. At 16-23, NY dropped seven games under.500 for the first time September 2014. The Mets are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Arizona, 1-6 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. Each of the five went down swinging. Corbin will get the Mets and White Sox in his next two starts. It was the 11th home run Harvey has given up so far this season, according to Kristie Ackert at The New York Daily News.

And when he came to home, Bautista stopped and appeared to have words with Atlanta catcher Kurt Suzuki . The benches emptied again but no punches were thrown.

Cobb (4-3) allowed three runs and six hits and retired the last eight batters he faced. Of their 23 wins this season, 17 have come at home. With a runner on and two outs in the seventh inning, he cracked a double to left-center field to plate the tying run.

Pinch hitter Wilmer Flores hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning for NY (16-21). The two-run shot came on a 3-1 pitch, clocked at 93-mph, that was deposited into the seats in left field. It was Descalso's fourth pinch-hit home run of his career. It was Reyes' third hit in as many at-bats and put the Mets in front, 4-3. In the 14 games that followed, the starting rotation combined for an ERA of 7.54, with a staggering 5.1 walks per nine innings. In addition, the Diamondbacks are tied with the Tampa Bay Rays, Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburg Pirates for the second-most triples in baseball with 10. Until Monday, they were 4-1 in road series openers.

And only Harvey could say whether or not the taunt in Arizona got to him, but the timing and the outcome were coincidental enough that they couldn't be ignored.

The Mets' seventh consecutive loss was made official when Montero fired a fastball down the chute to the first batter he faced, Chris Herrmann, then watched the ball sail over the fence for a walk-off homer. It was a nice approach by him. I'm pretty happy I was the one to do it. Both pitchers threw two innings in an extended spring training game last weekend. He is batting.417 (15-for-36) with nine RBI in the nine games.

- Drury went 0-for-5; he had hit safely in 13 straight home games, carrying an average of.412. On Tuesday, Goldschmidt became the eighth player in franchise history to steal home.

- Scottsdale resident and American Idol finalist Scott MacIntyre performed the National Anthem.

More enticing pitching help may be on the way late this month if Lugo and Matz avoid setbacks in their rehabilitation assignments. "Previous year everybody counted us out too and we fight back", said Mets shortstop Jose Reyes, who went 3-for-6 with an RBI double. He's lost back-to-back outings and is winless in his last three appearances. Wilhelmsen gave up the tiebreaking home run in a 10-inning loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday.
