Kirk Nieuwenhuis had two hits and an RBI, while David Wright and Lucas Duda each had a hit and an RBI to help New York end its road trip 3-3, improving to 24-20 on the season.

Frank Francisco had strike outs in the ninth to pick up 12th save – marking back to back games with a 1-2-3 innings for a save.
