The New York Mets (40-46) offense came alive late as they edged the Arizona Diamondbacks (50-37), 2-1, on Wednesday night at Chase Field for their fourth straight win.

New York was trailing 1-0 with two outs in the top of the ninth when Francisco Alvarez smacked a two-strike game-tying home run and Mark Canha later smoked a go-ahead RBI triple before David Robertson closed it out, recording his 13th save of the season.

Alvarez leads Major League Baseball with five game-tying or go-ahead home runs in the sixth inning or later this season.

Kodai Senga tossed eight innings of one-run ball while striking out 12 batters, matching his career high.

The Mets will go for the three-game sweep on Thursday with Carlos Carrasco on the bump. The first pitch is scheduled for 9:40 p.m.
