PHOENIX (AP) — Brandon Nimmo and Asdrubal Cabrera homered off Brad Boxberger in a four-run ninth inning and the New York Mets rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 on Sunday. The Diamondbacks led 3-1 entering the ninth and Boxberger (1-3), with his third blown save in 20 tries, struck out the first two batters. Jose Reyes reached on a bunt single and scored on Jose Bautista’s pinch-hit double to cut the lead to 3-1. Nimmo, who doubled and scored in the first inning, followed with a two-run shot to right field to put New York ahead 4-3 and Cabrera’s solo shot made it 5-3. The Mets split the four-game series in Arizona and won consecutive games for the first time since May 20-21. The Diamondbacks were 4-3 on the homestand. Jeurys Familia (3-3), just off the disabled list, allowed a run in an inning of relief to get the victory. Alex Avila reached to start the Arizona ninth when first baseman Dominic Smith dropped second baseman Cabrera’s throw for an error but Robert Gsellman retired the next three for his third save in seven tries. Robert Gsellman pitched the ninth for his third save in seven tries. Clay Buchholz and three Arizona relievers had shut down the Mets since the opening inning until the big rally. David Peralta doubled in Arizona’s first run in the two-run fourth inning and made a diving grab in left field to rob Zack Wheeler of a hit to end the fifth. Jake Lamb’s bloop single in the eighth made it 3-1. Buchholz went 5 2-3 innings, giving up a run and four hits. Nimmo led off the game with a double, took third on a ground out and scored on Todd Frazier’s sacrifice fly to center. The announced crowd was a sellout of 47,900, second-largest at Chase Field this season behind 48,703 for the season opener. TOSSED Mets left-hander Jason Vargas was ejected from the dugout by home plate umpire Jim Reynolds in the bottom of the fourth inning. Vargas is scheduled to start Tuesday night at Colorado. TRAINER’S ROOM Mets: Familia had been sidelined since June 7 with a sore right shoulder. To make room, New York optioned RHP Jacob Rhame to Triple-A Las Vegas. Diamondbacks: RHP Shelby Miller (Tommy John surgery) made his fourth rehab start on Saturday night. He threw 6 2-3 scoreless innings for Class A Visalia against San Jose. Miller allowed three hits and struck out 10 with no walks. He threw 81 pitches, 56 strikes. UP NEXT Mets: RHP Jacob deGrom (4-2, 1.55 ERA) takes the mound for New York Monday night in the opener of a four-game series in Colorado. LHP Tyler Anderson (4-1, 4.48) starts for the Rockies. Diamondbacks: Arizona heads to Anaheim for a two-game interleague series with the Angels. RHP Zack Greinke (5-5, 3.87) starts for the Diamondbacks in Monday night’s opener.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Two-time Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins is taking part in practice at organized team activities without the red jersey which tells other New York Giants players to keep their hands off him. It doesn’t mean Collins has fully recovered from a late-season broken right arm that required two surgeries to fix. It does mean the leader of the defense is close, and could take part in next week’s mandatory three-day minicamp. Don’t expect it, though. Coming off a 3-13 season, the Giants are not going to run the risk even with a new 3-4 defense being installed by coordinator James Bettcher for coach Pat Shurmur. “I check with the doctors sometime this week, or next week,” Collins said Monday after practice. “I’m very close. Just right now, we’re just taking the precautions, not putting me into the team things, getting my arm caught or anything. We’re right around the corner from the season, so we’re not about to risk anything.” Collins broke his right forearm on Dec. 24 in Arizona. He had surgery the following week, but the arm did not heal properly, requiring a second surgery in late April. “Nothing went wrong, we did everything, had my second opinion from other doctors, everything was great,” he said. “I was just in that 20 percentile where it didn’t heal correctly.” Collins said he is not concerned about his arm. He has no intention of wearing a protective device on it next season. He currently wears a piece of carbon fiber as protection. The new defense reminds Collins of what he played at Alabama. He feels players are hungrier and know they have to earn their jobs this season. He includes himself in that group. “I’ve got to come in and say that I can learn this defense, even though I’m not on the field, and put it to the test,” said Collins, who will be entering his fourth pro season. “And when I get my opportunity to show that I can do it, that me not being on the field is not slowing me down.” Collins also has been active in community work since the injury. He took a trip with a group of teammates to Puerto Rico last month. “What I took away from it was that people are still out there grieving and need help,” he said, adding the trip brought back memories. When he was in grade school in Louisiana, Collins experienced Hurricane Katrina in 2005. “I lost my home, I’ve been without power, I’ve been displaced,” Collins said. “Is it shocking? No, because I’ve been through it. But seeing what they’re going through, I feel it, and I know their hearts sting and I know what they’re going through. So, as much as I can help, I will try my best to help.” The memory he took home from the trip was the smiling faces he saw as the group distributed packages, food — and the open arms just to give people a hug. NOTES: The Giants signed undrafted tight end Garrett Dickerson of Northwestern. They also waived receiver Keeon Johnson and defensive backs Jeremiah McKinnon and Mike Jones. … CB Janoris Jenkins intercepted Eli Manning’s fade pass to the corner during a red-zone drill. … CB Eli Apple also had an impressive breakup on a deep pass to Sterling Shepard. … WR Odell Beckham Jr. and DT Damon Harrison were not at the voluntary practice Monday, but Shurmur says they will be at the mandatory three-day camp next week.
