Oeltjen has four more hits, leads D-backs to 6-2 winPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -- Trent Oeltjen extended his remarkable big league debut with four more hits and Alex Romero had two hits and two RBIs as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the New York Mets 6-2 last night.
Oeltjen has 12 hits in his first 24 at-bats since his contract was purchased from Triple-A Reno to replace injured Justin Upton on Aug. 6. He has hit safely in all five of his major league games.
He also made a stellar catch in center field.
The Sydney, Australia, native singled and scored in a three-run third inning capped by Romero's two-run single. He tripled and scored in the fourth for a 5-2 Arizona lead.
The Diamondbacks lead the series 2-0.
The finale is set for 12:40 this afternoon at Chase Field, with Arizona right-hander Jon Garland starting against Mets left-hander Oliver Perez.
