Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - In desperate need of a win, the Arizona Diamondbacks were able to break through against one of the hottest pitchers in baseball.
Cody Ross cracked a three-run homer and the D'backs roughed up Matt Harvey to take a 5-3 victory from the New York Mets and end a season-worst five-game losing streak.
Arizona had dropped the first two of this four-game set and eight of nine overall coming into Wednesday's affair, but were able to pound out five runs against Harvey (7-2) over the sixth and seventh frames to mount a sustainable lead on a rainy night at Citi Field.
Eric Chavez and Miguel Montero each had two hits and an RBI, while Randall Delgado (1-2) picked up his first win in an Arizona uniform with nine strikeouts over seven innings of two-run ball.
It was the most runs Harvey has allowed in a start all season, with the right- handed hurler serving up nine hits and yielding three walks over six-plus frames. He did strike out nine batters.
David Wright, Josh Satin and Daniel Murphy each homered to account for New York's offense.
