The Mets were 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position against Arroyo, their lone hit by Wright in the first. He followed singles to left by Lagares and Murphy with an RBI hit to a similar spot.

That tied the score at 1-all. Owings homered to left field on the first pitch he saw from Montero.

Arroyo allowed six hits and a run. He struck out one, walked one and hit two. Rafael Montero gave up just two hits and walked three.

“Of course, this is my best, and there is better to come, thank God,” Montero said through a translator.
