PHOENIX (AP) -- Doug Davis had a two-run double and won his third consecutive decision as the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the New York Mets to their ninth loss in 12 games, 7-4 last night.

The Diamondbacks' Trent Oeltjen hit his third homer in four major league games.

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 about a week ago.

Arizona has won eight of 12 overall.

Game 2 of the series is tonight at 6:40 at Chase Field.

Diamondbacks right-hander Max Scherzer is scheduled to start against Mets righty Livan Hernandez.
