Brian Bogusevic knocked in the go-ahead run with a double that plated Adeiny Hechavarria, who began the ninth by tripling off Joe Nathan. Juan Diaz later delivered an RBI single to cap the scoring.
Mathis had a solo homer earlier in the game and finished 4-for-5 with three RBI, with Hechavarria collecting three hits and Reed Johnson and Casey McGehee each going 2-for-3.
