NEW YORK (AP) - Jeremy Hefner and the New York Mets handed Patrick Corbin his first loss, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-1 on a drizzly Tuesday night and sending the NL West leaders to their season-worst fifth straight defeat.
Josh Satin hit an RBI double that put the Mets ahead 2-1 in a seven-run seventh inning that lasted about 2 hours, albeit with a rain delay of 1 hour, 41 minutes in the middle.
When Arizona retook the field, there was another halt - the grounds crew hadn't redrawn the batter's boxes or put a rosin bag on the mound. Corbin was pulled when play resumed and the Mets broke it open against the bullpen, with Omar Quintanilla hitting a two-run single and Eric Young Jr. lining a two-run double.
