NEW YORK (AP) _ Jason Bay homered and drove in three runs, Ike Davis went deep for the third straight game and the peppy New York Mets held off the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 on Saturday for their third straight win.

Dillon Gee (2-0) went six innings and allowed two earned runs, an RBI triple by Stephen Drew and a solo homer by Miguel Montero that tied the game in the sixth.

Daniel Murphy made his young teammate a winner, though, atoning for an error that led to two unearned runs for Arizona with a go-ahead single later in the sixth inning. Murphy then gave the New York bullpen a bit of breathing room with another RBI single in the eighth.

Barry Enright (0-2) got hammered again for Arizona, allowing five runs and 12 hits in 5 2-3 innings. He’s allowed at least four runs in all four of his starts this season.
