Each Mets batter walked up to home plate to the beats of a Beastie Boys song in honor of the New York rap group's Adam Yauch, who died of cancer Friday at 47.
Hairston — along with teammate Justin Turner — was responsible for spurring the tribute. Hairston, who walked up to "Root Down," got the Mets on the board in the third.
After loading the bases on two hits and a walk to start the inning, Lucas Duda struck out, dropping New York to 0 for 9 with the bases full and less than two outs this season. Hairston ended that stretch with a two-run double to left. Davis had a run-scoring grounder and Andres Torres an RBI single to make it 4-2.
The Mets started off the fifth with singles that hit off Arizona infielders but Miley got a strikeout and a double play to end the threat.
"They were aggressive," Miley said. "After the third inning, we were down two. I knew if I could keep it right there we'd have a chance to come back and win it late."
Gee walked two to start the sixth but induced a groundout and struck out two to quash that threat. Gee gave up four hits — only a single after the second. He walked three and struck out six.
"Lately I've been making good pitches late in the game," Gee said. "I think I've grown as a pitcher."
Miley is in Arizona's rotation because Daniel Hudson is on the disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. Coming into Friday's start, Miley had given up only an unearned run in 12 1-3 innings as a starter over two outings.
This time, he yielded four runs and seven hits in six innings.
