PHOENIX, July 28 (UPI) -- Willie Bloomquist's single and Jonathon Niese's throwing error accounted for three second-inning runs Friday in Arizona's 11-5 win over the New York Mets.

The Mets had taken a 2-0 lead in top of the second but they quickly gave it back in the bottom of the frame, when the Diamondbacks scored six times.

After Niese (7-5) issued a bases-loaded walk to Henry Blanco and an RBI single to pitcher Josh Collmenter to tie the score, Bloomquist hit a squibber to the left of the mound, allowing Stephen Drew to come home with the go-ahead run.

Niese fielded the grounder but his throw to first sailed down the right field line, letting two more D-back runs come across.

Bloomquist went to third on the play and scored on Aaron Hill's sacrifice fly to complete the big frame.

Chris Young added a pair hits, including a two-run double, as the Diamondbacks evened their four-game series at one win apiece.

Collmenter (3-2) earned the triumph despite yielding five runs on seven hits over six innings.

David Wright socked a three-run homer and Ike Davis added a solo shot for New York.
