NEW YORK (AP) — Lucas Duda got three more hits and the New York Mets overcame Giancarlo Stanton’s blast and Ichiro Suzuki’s ballet to beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 Thursday night for their fifth straight win.

The Mets lost a replay challenge that took nearly six minutes, but posted their longest winning streak since May 2013.

Wilmer Flores hit a three-run homer that helped the Mets rally from a 3-0 deficit. Duda had three hits to lift his average to .395.

Stanton hit his first home run since a fastball to the face ended his season last September.

Suzuki made a pair of headfirst dives into home plate on the same play, eluding catcher Travis d’Arnaud to make it 5-all in the seventh. Originally called out, Suzuki was ruled safe after a lengthy replay review.

Jerry Blevins (1-0) got the win and Jeurys Familia closed for his fourth save. Mike Dunn (0-1) took the loss.
