Reddick 2-run double in 10th, D'backs rally past Mets 6-5

Josh Reddick hit a two-run double in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied to beat the New York Mets 6-5 on Tuesday night.

Arizona overcame a four-run deficit and tied it with two outs in the ninth on an RBI single by Josh Rojas off closer Edwin Díaz, handed his first blown save in 10 chances this season.

Pavin Smith started the comeback with a three-run homer off Mets starter Marcus Stroman in the sixth.

A little earlier, Rojas and Stroman got into a verbal spat on the field. The benches emptied, but no punches were thrown.

Dominic Smith homered and drove in three runs for New York, which had won five straight. Francisco Lindor had an RBI triple.

Pinch-hitter James McCann delivered a run-scoring double off winner Alex Young (2-4) with none out in the top of the 10th to give the Mets a 5-4 lead, but they were unable to add on.

Smith drew a one-out walk from Trevor May (2-2) in the bottom half to put two on. Reddick’s double appeared to land right on the right-field line, scoring automatic runner Eduardo Escobar and Smith.

A replay review upheld the call of fair ball.

New York, which leads the NL East despite a rash of injuries, had been 14-0 when leading after eight innings.
