Carlos Beltran hit a two-run homer with two outs in the 13th inning, and the New York Mets overcame another blown save by Billy Wagner to snap a five-game losing streak with a 5-3 victory Wednesday night over the Arizona Diamondbacks.The Mets chased a bruised Brandon Webb early and took advantage of a key error by third baseman Mark Reynolds, who tied it by hitting a three-run shot off Wagner with two outs in the ninth inning.

That cost Mike Pelfrey a win in the best outing of his big league career, but New York refused to fold and avoided falling four games below .500 for the first time since Sept. 17, 2005, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
