PHOENIX (AP) _ Ryan Roberts hit a three-run homer and the
Arizona Diamondbacks came from behind to win for the 33rd time this
season with a 6-4 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday night.

Daniel Hudson (12-8) allowed four runs, two earned, on eight
hits in eight innings as the Diamondbacks won their fifth straight
to remain two games ahead of second-place San Francisco in the NL
West. Hudson also had a run-scoring single, his 13th RBI of the
year.

J.J. Putz pitched a scoreless ninth for his 29th save in 33
attempts.

Mets starter Mike Pelfrey was hit by a line drive off the bat of
Gerardo Parra leading off the fifth inning and had to leave the
game with a bruised right elbow. His team led 4-2 at the time.

Reliever D.J. Carrasco (1-3) came on to hit Willie Bloomquist, then
Roberts followed with his 16th home run of the season on the first
pitch he saw.
