NEW YORK (AP) - Travis d'Arnaud snapped an eighth-inning tie with a two-run double and the New York Mets overcame an early injury to starter Jonathon Niese, beating the skidding Texas Rangers 6-5 Friday night to stop a four-game slide.

Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer, and the Mets opened a 10-game homestand with their second victory in nine games. Niese left in the first with a bruised lower back after he was hit by Alex Rios' line drive. X-rays were negative, the team said.

Star third baseman David Wright missed his seventh straight game with a sore left shoulder, but fill-in Eric Campbell had three hits and an RBI for New York. Carlos Torres, pressed into long relief when Niese was injured, gave up two runs in 4 2-3 valuable innings.

Jenrry Mejia (5-3) retired Rios with two runners in scoring position to end the eighth.
