Diamondbacks beat Mets on Herrmann's homer in 11th

While acknowledging, "Losing can be as contagious as winning", Collins said, "We're going to turn this around".

In the past calendar year, Jake Lamb has 30 home runs and.292 isolated power against right-handers.

It went down as another comeback victory for the D-backs, their second in as many games and the 16th of the season. But after a video review, umpires ruled the ball hit the yellow line on the batter's eye in straightaway center and the call was changed to a double.

Pinch hitter Wilmer Flores hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning for NY (16-21). Two of those homers and five of those RBIs came in this series amid a tweaked mental approach by Tomas, who said he hasn't tried to do too much in the batter's box.

He set a career high by extending his hitting streak to nine games, though it was the Mets' only hit against Diamondbacks starter Zack Godley.

Before Gsellman entered, Josh Edgin went two-thirds of an inning.

First-year manager Torey Lovullo said "the thing that stands out to me is they are one big unit, one cohesive unit that prides themselves on picking up one another".

Jorge De La Rosa (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win.

"Wherever they put me I'm going to keep on working", he said.

[AZ Central] Lamb sees progress in at-bats vs. lefties - The numbers might not suggest it, but Lovullo has seen progress, and he said he'll not only continue to play Lamb against most left-handed starters, but that he has no plans of shifting him out of the cleanup spot in order to prevent teams from pitching around Goldschmidt last in games. He struck out seven and walked five. Two batters after Paul Goldschmidt narrowly missed a go-ahead solo homer, Robles served up a three-run shot to Yasmany Tomas, who crushed a 97 miles per hour fastball off the batter's eye well above the 25-foot fence in straightaway center. "But I battled through some tough innings with walks, and the defense played outstanding behind me again".

In this series, the Diamondback starters failed to reach that mark in all three games, but each starter threw at least six innings each. For manager Terry Collins, it came in the seventh inning, when righthander Zack Wheeler allowed a leadoff single. I hit a grand slam, but I don't think there's anything that compares to hitting a walk-off home run. He averaged 95 miles per hour with his fastball and threw 108 pitches, his most since coming back.

Arizona finally broke through when Lamb led off the seventh with an opposite-field home run, hitting Wheeler's 2-0 pitch over the left-center wall to tie it at 1. A decision is expected Tuesday. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a low-grade right groin strain a day after he injured it running to first base on a single. He was hurt in the 10th inning of Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh.RF David Peralta was out of the lineup after leaving Sunday's game in the eighth inning with right glute tightness. He struck out as a pinch hitter in the eighth.

Ron Gardenhire was back as bench coach for the Diamondbacks. Gardenhire underwent surgery to remove the gland on April 18. Milone will make his second start for NY after being claimed off waivers from Milwaukee.

It was Herrmann's first career walk-off homer as he squared up a 95-mph fastball on a 3-2 pitch from Rafael Montero (0-3) for the D-backs' second sweep of the season and the first at home against the Mets since 2011.
