Ian Kennedy focused more on Arizona's victory than the three home runs he allowed to one hitter. Kennedy pitched into the seventh inning to extend his recent run of good starts and the Diamondbacks overcame Ike Davis' three homers Saturday night.
"Erase him out of the lineup and I would have done maybe a lot better," Kennedy said of Davis, right. "But we won and that's the important thing."
Miguel Montero homered, scored twice and drove in two runs for third-place Arizona (51-50), which has won eight of 11 to move 4 1/2 games back of the NL West-leading Giants. Gerardo Parra added three hits and two RBIs.
New York lost for the 14th time in 16 games.
