PHOENIX (AP) - Trent Oeltjen extended his remarkable big league debut with four more hits, falling a homer shy of the cycle, and Alex Romero had two hits and two RBIs in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 6-2 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night.
Oeltjen has 12 hits in his first 24 at-bats since his contract was purchased from Triple-A Reno to replace injured Justin Upton on Aug. 6. He has hit safely in all five of his major league games. Oeltjen also made a stellar catch in center field.
Oeltjen, a native of Sydney, Australia, singled and scored in a three-run third inning capped by Romero's two-run single. He tripled and scored in the fourth for a 5-2 Arizona lead.
Oeltjen's old teammate in Reno, Alex Romero, went 2-for-3 with two RBI.
