KELLY JOHNSON: Cracked a two-run, pinch-hit home run to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth inning...Was his seventh home run of the season and sixth since joining the Mets...Was his third pinch-hit home run of the season and the fifth of his career...Four of his five career pinch-hit home runs have come as a Met...His three pinch-hit home runs this season are the most for a Met in a single season since Jordany Valdespin hit six pinch-hit home runs in 2012.

NEIL WALKER: Went 2-5 to extend his hitting streak to a season-best eight games and is batting .457 (16-34) during the seven-game streak...Since July 27, Walker is batting .483 (28-58) in 14 games...Walker entered the day with the best batting average in the league since July 27.

BARTOLO COLÓN: Worked 7.0 innings and allowed one run, earned, on seven hits in a no-decision...Struck out a season-high tying eight batters and walked one...Was the ninth time this season that Colón has allowed one run or fewer...Since turning 40, Colón has 38 starts in which he's allowed one run or fewer...Walked one or fewer batters for the 18th time this season, which is now tied for most in the majors this season with St. Louis' Mike Leake...In his last 15 games, Colón is 7-3 with a 3.13 ERA (30 earned runs/86.1 innings).

RAFAEL MONTERO: Was hit on his non-throwing hand by a comebacker tonight while pitching for Binghamton (AA) of the Eastern League...X-rays were negative.

DIAMONDBACKS STEALS: With their four stolen bases in tonight's game, the D-Backs have swiped nine total bases in the series...That total sets a franchise record for stolen bases in a three-game series...Arizona's previous best in a three-game series was eight stolen bases (September 3-5, 2007 vs. San Diego).

ÓSCAR HERNÁNDEZ: Hit his first career home run in the top of the 12th inning to give Arizona the lead.

ROBBIE RAY: Tossed 7.0 shutout innings and allowed three hits in a no-decision...Struck out four and walked none...Became the third Diamondbacks lefty to throw 7.0 or more scoreless innings with three or fewer baserunners...The other two lefties to accomplish the feat were Randy Johnson (six times) and Brian Anderson (five times)...Johnson was the last to do so on July 21, 2008 vs. Chicago-NL...Tonight was Ray's second career outing versus the Mets...In his two starts versus New York, Ray has not allowed a run in 12.0 innings.

RAY STRIKEOUTS: Struck out four in tonight's game but had his 21-game streak of striking out five or more batters halted...The streak was the second-longest by a major league pitcher this season behind Jose Fernandez' active 22-game streak...Ray's streak is the fifth-longest in Diamondbacks history and the longest since the 2002-2003 seasons...His four strikeouts tonight also snapped a streak of nine straight starts with seven or more strikeouts, which was the longest active streak in the majors and tied for the second-longest streak this season behind Fernandez 10-game streak.

PAUL GOLDSCHMIDT: Drove in two of Arizona's three runs and finished the game 2-4...Is batting .333 (21-63) with two home runs and 12 RBI in his last 16 games

JEAN SEGURA: Reached base four times and finished the game 3-5 with two doubles, two stolen bases and scored two of the three runs for Arizona...Is batting .342 (27-79) over his last 19 games.
