PHOENIX -- Doug Davis had a two-run double and won his third straight decision, Trent Oeltjen hit his third homer in four major league games and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the New York Mets to their ninth loss in 12 games, 7-4 on Monday night.
Arizona catcher Miguel Montero had three doubles and scored twice. First baseman Chad Tracy had two run-scoring singles as the Diamondbacks beat the Mets for the fourth time in five meetings this season after taking three of four at Citi Field from July 31-Aug. 3.
Arizona has won eight of 12 overall.
Davis hit a line drive to short center field that got past a diving Angel Pagan, scoring Montero and Augie Ojeda, who was intentionally walked, for a 3-0 lead in the second. Montero had driven in Mark Reynolds for the first run off Mike Pelfrey (8-8).
Tracy had RBI singles in the third and sixth innings.
Oeltjen made it 6-2 in the seventh. Oeltjen, who also doubled, hit the first pitch from Mets reliever Elmer Dessens into the right-field seats.
Fernando Tatis had a two-run triple off Davis (7-10) in the fourth inning.
Davis, who is 3-1 in eight career starts against the Mets, won back-to-back starts for the first time since having surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid in April 2008. Davis beat the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 8 before his surgery two days later, then won in his return against Atlanta on May 23.
Mets second baseman Luis Castillo walked to open the fourth inning against Davis before David Wright singled to left. Tatis drove in both runners with a one-out triple off the base of the center-field fence, but Davis prevented more damage when he struck out Daniel Murphy on a breaking pitch before getting Omir Santos to ground out to end the inning.
The Mets scored twice in the ninth off closer Chad Qualls, when Anderson Hernadez doubled in Murphy, who led off the inning with a single. Pagan added an RBI single.
Pelfrey dropped to 0-4 in five starts against Arizona while losing his second straight meeting of the season. Pelfrey had not pitched since a 5-2 loss to the Diamondbacks on Aug. 2, being pushed back to be with his wife, Angela, for the birth of their first child Thursday.
Reynolds was named the National League player of the week after hitting .448 with six home runs and 10 RBIs. Reynolds homered in five of Arizona's seven games, and entered Monday with seven homers in his last nine games. He also shared the NL award with Colorado closer Huston Street for the week of June 8-14. Mets left-hander Billy Wagner on a rehab assignment threw a scoreless inning at Class-A St. Lucie on Monday. He gave up one hit and had a strikeout while throwing 14 pitches. He is scheduled to pitch again Wednesday, a Mets spokesman said. Wagner has made four scoreless appearances for St. Lucie, with six strikeouts and no walks in four innings. Arizona infielder Rusty Ryal, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Reno when Chris Young was optioned to the minor leagues, had a pinch-hit single in the eighth inning in his first major league at-bat.
