Daniel Murphy picked up the big hit of the Mets' win, a two-run single in the first. Murphy went 7-for-12 (.583) in the series against the Diamondbacks.

He is now hitting .315 on the season.

"He is such a good hitter," Terry Collins said. "He is going to hit 12-to-15 homers. We know that. What he does is he puts the bat on the ball. He has a chance to drive runs in."

Frank Francisco has now converted seven of eight save chances.

Andre Torres had a hit to tie his career-best hit streak to six games.

• The Mets have won their first three homestands of the season. Last season, they won three all season.

• In games decided by two runs or less, the Mets are 11-3 (9-2 at home).
