NEW YORK, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Jon Garland's complete-game seven-hitter Sunday led Arizona's 5-2 win over the New York Mets.

Garland (6-10) avoided a big inning in 106 pitches, did not walk a batter and notched two strikeouts in his best performance this season. He stopped a personal three-start losing streak.

One of two hits by Chad Tracy was a two-run, fifth-inning double.

Gerardo Parra hit an RBI single and a sacrifice fly, and Alex Romero had one RBI for the Diamondbacks, who won twice in the three-game series.

New York's Jeff Francoeur had two hits, including a solo homer in the fifth and Alex Cora had one RBI for the Mets, who have lost three of four.

Losing pitcher Mike Pelfrey (8-7) surrendered three runs and five hits in five innings with three walks and six strikeouts.
