NEW YORK (AP) -- The Diamondbacks had the potential tying run in scoring position four times in the last five innings.
A day after snapping a nine-game losing streak in one-run games, Arizona was back to losing a close one. Rookie starter Patrick Corbin was knocked out in the fourth inning of a 4-3 loss to the New York Mets on Saturday.
Ryan Roberts broke out of a 3-for-35 slump with a home run, but the Diamondbacks couldn't get any clutch hits late in the game.
"We had a lot of pressure on them all day -- just couldn't get the hit," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said.
Mets ace Johan Santana earned his first win since shoulder surgery in September 2010, toughing out seven innings to snap New York's four-game losing streak. Mike Nickeas and Andres Torres each hit a two-run single to back the two-time Cy Young Award winner.
"It's always good to get that first one out of the way," Santana said.
