SAN DIEGO (AP) — Scott Hairston drove in the go-ahead run with a fielder's choice with one out in the 10th inning and the New York Mets beat the San Diego Padres 5-4 on Monday night to snap a five-game losing streak.

The Mets won for just the fourth time in 15 games. Lucas Duda and Josh Thole each had a homer among their three hits, and Thole had three RBIs.

After letting the Padres tie the game in the eighth, the Mets opened the 10th with consecutive walks by Jason Pridie and Thole against rookie left-hander Josh Spence (0-2)They advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Ruben Tejada off Chad Qualls. Pridie scored when Hairston, a former Padres player, hit a hard grounder to shortstop Alberto Gonzalez with the infield drawn in. Gonzalez fielded the ball and fell backward. He had no play at first but the Padres threw out Thole at third.
