NEW YORK -- Once Martin Prado caught Curtis Grandersons popup, Arizonas around-the-horn show zipped into fast motion. Kevin Hogan Redskins Jersey . The third baseman whipped the ball across the diamond to second baseman Aaron Hill. He quickly tossed it to shortstop Chris Owings, who flipped over his shoulder to left fielder Cody Ross. One more pass to centre fielder A.J. Pollock, and soon the souvenir got thrown into the stands. Its a fun, unique routine the Diamondbacks often perform after inning-ending pops and flyouts, and they got to practice a few more times Saturday in a 3-2 win over the New York Mets. "No one really talked about it, we just started doing it sometime last year," Ross said. "You throw it to one guy, and then it goes to the next guy and the next," he said. "Just whoever is looking for the ball as we run to the dugout," he said. "Kind of a team-bonding thing, a chemistry thing." As Ross spoke, the postgame music in the Arizona clubhouse was pumping. "Young, Wild & Free" by Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg featuring Bruno Mars was playing, and Ross sang along to the lyrics of "were just having fun." Quite a difference from the start of the season for the Diamondbacks. After opening up at 8-22, theyve gone 11-9. Josh Collmenter provided another solid start, Prado hit a pair of RBI singles and the Diamondbacks won on a wet afternoon to end a three-game skid. A day after Hill had a home run washed out when the game at Citi Field was postponed because of rain, he cracked a key hit that counted. His second-inning double set up run-scoring singles by Prado and Ross that put Arizona ahead to stay. David Wright homered, doubled and singled for the Mets. After he connected in the fifth for his third homer, Granderson popped out and the Diamondbacks began tossing the ball around as they headed toward the bench. "Its like hot potato out there," Collmenter said. "Its fun to watch." Collmenter (3-2) won his third decision in a row over a span of six starts. The righty with the unusual, straight over-the-top delivery allowed two runs in six innings before the Arizona bullpen held on. Collmenter led NL relievers in innings last year, and began this season with four relief appearances. He then moved into the rotation after starters Randall Delgado and Trevor Cahill were demoted. Arizona reliever Evan Marshall got Daniel Murphy to ground into a double play with two on to end the seventh, and Brad Ziegler escaped a two-on, one-out jam in the eighth. Addison Reed pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances. Zack Wheeler (1-5) is now winless in seven starts. His lone victory came in mid-April when he won at Phoenix in Collmenters first start of the year. Wheelers control troubles have hurt him this year. A leadoff walk in the second led to Arizona scoring twice, and Wheeler later hit two batters. "I was a little bit better with my command today. I was not perfect, of course, but it was better," he said. Wheeler was pulled after throwing 118 pitches, matching a career high. "I could have kept going, if it was not for the pitch count or whatever. I felt strong all the way through," he said. Hill doubled off the left-centre wall in the second, near the spot where he cleared the fence Friday night for a two-run homer. The stats from that game were wiped away when it was stopped in the fourth inning because of heavy showers, forcing a doubleheader Sunday. Prados RBI single in the third came after a throwing error by shortstop Wilmer Flores and made it 3-0 as a light rain fell on and off. Granderson hit an RBI double in the Mets third after singles by Murphy and Wright. NOTES: Arizona had lost five in a row to the Mets. ... The Mets are 1-9 in their last 10 games decided by one run. ... Arizona RHP Bronson Arroyo (4-3, 4.45) will start Game 1 Sunday against RHP Rafael Montero (0-2, 6.97).

Mets LF Chris Young rammed into the wall padding while catching Hills drive in the fifth. ... Mets RHP Bartolo Colon turned 41, a day after pitching four innings in the rainout.

Mark Teahen scored the go-ahead run in the home seventh on an error by Scott Sizemore, who had knotted the game with a solo homer in the previous half- inning. Paul Konerko then hit an RBI single which proved to be the winning run.CLEVELAND -- Michael Brantley homered and drove in three runs, Carlos Santana also homered and the Cleveland Indians broke a six-game losing streak with a 12-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Clevelands struggling offence, which scored 13 runs on an 0-6 road trip, finally broke loose. Brantley hit a leadoff homer in the fifth and added a two-run single in the sixth. Santana hit a solo homer in the second and had an RBI single in a five-run first, while Ryan Raburn and Yan Gomes each drove in two runs. Danny Salazar (1-3) was charged with five runs, three earned, in five innings and earned his first win of the season. Jose Abreu hit his major-league leading 11th homer in the fifth, but the White Sox couldnt overcome a shaky start by John Danks (2-2), who allowed eight runs in five innings. The Indians placed All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list prior to the game with a pulled muscle in his side. Cleveland pitchers Corey Kluber and Cody Allen wore chicken outfits during batting practice while standing in the outfield in an attempt to help the team out of its funk. The strategy apparently worked. Santanas RBI single, Raburns two-run double and Gomes two-run single highlighted Clevelands first inning. The fast start was enough to hold off the hard-hitting White Sox, who lead the AL in runs scored but have lost three in a row. Abreu struck out against Salazar in his first two at-bats, but homered to left on a 3-2 pitch in the fifth. The rookie sensation also leads the league with 33 RBIs. Salazar worked out of a bases-loaded, no-outs jam in the fourth. The right-hander struck out six and won for the first time since Sept. Alex Smith Jersey. 25 of last season, also against Chicago. Kipnis absence hurt the Indians immediately as his replacement, Elliot Johnson, committed two errors. Both of the miscues came on dropped throws on potential force plays. The first came in Chicagos three-run second inning. The second helped the White Sox load the bases with nobody out in the fourth, but Salazar got out of the inning. The White Sox scored three times in the second on singles by Alejandro De Aza and Adrian Nieto and a passed ball by Gomes. Alexei Ramirez, the ALs leading hitter, was 2 for 4 and is batting .356. Dayan Viciedo, the third-leading hitter in the league, was hitless in three at-bats and is batting .337. Nieto got his first major league RBI in the second and had a career-high three hits. Chicago has lost seven straight at Progressive Field last season. The White Sox lost their final 14 games against the Indians in 2013 before taking three of four at home last month. NOTES: Kipnis is expected to miss three to five weeks. ... Adam Eaton left the game with a strained right hamstring in the fourth after hitting into the double play. ...
