Reddick 2-run double in 10th, D’backs rally past Mets 6-5
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.
“He’s always ready to compete at the best level he can,” Lovullo said about Reddick. “That’s contagious.”
New York, which leads the NL East despite a rash of injuries, had been 14-0 when leading after eight innings.
The Mets opened the scoring in the fourth against Caleb Smith, who made his first start since April 13. Pete Alonso reached on a two-out single and Smith homered to make it 2-0.
New York padded its lead in the sixth. Jonathan Villar singled and scored on a triple off the center-field wall by Lindor, who came into the game hitting .198. Lindor scored on a sacrifice fly by Smith.
As Stroman headed to the bench after getting Rojas on a popup to end the fifth, they started jawing at each other. Arizona left fielder David Peralta ran over to say something to Stroman. At that point, players from both teams gathered near first base. No fighting broke out, but Lovullo and counterpart Luis Rojas had a long conversation before returning to their respective dugouts.
