Steven Matz pitched into the seventh inning and Michael Conforto drove in four runs as the Mets ended a four-game losing streak with a 5-1 victory over the D-backs on Saturday night.
Things you should know about tonight's game...
1) Matz was solid, allowing one run on six hits in 6 2/3 innings. The left-hander walked one and struck out three as he recorded his fourth quality start in his last five appearances.
2) Conforto led the offense with a homer, a double and four RBIs. The outfielder put the Mets on the board in the second inning when he launched his ninth home run of the year, driving in Wilmer Flores and Brandon Nimmo. It was Conforto's third long ball in just eight career at-bats against D-backs lefty Patrick Corbin. The 25-year-old added an RBI double off Corbin in the sixth.
3) Robert Gsellman inherited two of Matz's baserunners in the seventh before hitting Jon Jay with a pitch to load the bases. However, Gsellman induced a force out at second to escape the jam and went on to pitch a clean eighth inning. Anthony Swarzak struck out the side in the ninth to wrap up the victory.
4) When Amed Rosario crossed the plate to extend the Mets' lead to 4-0 in the third, it marked the first time since June 1 that New York has scored more than three runs in a game. The Mets' 10 hits were their most since May 29.
The Mets (29-38) conclude their series with the D-backs (39-31) at Chase Field on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET.
