PHOENIX, July 20 (UPI) -- Mark Reynolds belted a three-run homer to pace an 18-hit attack and the Arizona Diamondbacks pounded the New York Mets 13-2 Monday.

Justin Upton and Gerardo Parra contributed two RBI apiece and Ian Kennedy (5-7) limited New York to one run in a five-inning start to collect the victory.

Mets starter Mike Pelfrey (10-5) lasted only 1 1/3 innings after being rocked for six runs on seven hits.

Jose Reyes had two hits and drove in a run for the Mets, who fell 5 1/2 games behind Atlanta in the National League East.
