NEW YORK — Andrew Brown hit a two-run single with two outs in the 13th inning and the New York Mets put together a pair of late rallies to hand the NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks their fourth straight loss, 5-4 on Monday night.

Hot-hitting Josh Satin tied it with an RBI single in the ninth off Arizona closer J.J. Putz. Cody Ross led off the 13th with a homer against David Aardsma (1-0), but the Mets fought back again against the Diamondbacks bullpen.

Satin doubled with one out off Josh Collmenter (4-1) and John Buck was intentionally walked. Mets pitcher Matt Harvey pinch hit for Aardsma and sacrificed the runners over.

After Omar Quintanilla was intentionally walked, Brown lined an 0-2 pitch into left-center and was mobbed by teammates near first base well after midnight.
