Adam LaRoche powers Diamondbacks to another win over Mets

Posted: Updated:

NEWS YORK -- Adam LaRoche hit a pair of three-run homers and Daniel Hudson made a memorable debut for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who turned Citi Field into their own launching pad during a 14-1 romp over the New York Mets on Sunday.

Stephen Drew and John Hester added back-to-back homers as the Diamondbacks wrapped up a dominating season series against New York. They took five of six, rebounding from the lone loss to prevent the Mets from winning consecutive games for the first time since early June.

Hudson (1-0) allowed three hits in eight innings in his sixth career start. It was his first game since he was acquired from the White Sox last week in the deal that sent Edwin Jackson to Chicago.

The Diamondbacks will be at home Monday to open a four-game series against the Washington Nationals.
