PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks chased Mike Pelfrey after 1-and-a-third innings and Mark Reynolds drove in four runs with a triple and his 21st home run in a 13-2 rout of the New York Mets on Monday night.

Pelfrey (10-5) threw 74 pitches, 51 in a miserable first inning, in the shortest outing of his career. He allowed six runs and seven hits.

After starting the season 9-1, the right-hander is 1-4 with a 9.11 ERA in his last six starts. Pelfrey is 0-5 in six career starts against the Diamondbacks.

Justin Upton had two RBIs with a double and a triple as Arizona amassed a season-high 18 hits.

The Mets have lost four of their first five on an 11-game post-All-Star break trip to the West, and seven of nine overall.

They fell 5 1/2 games behind idle Atlanta in the National League East.

Game 2 of the three-game series is scheduled for Tuesday night in Phoenix.
