Mets Rally Late, But Come Up Short

The Mets fell behind early, and despite a late inning rally, lost to the Diamondbacks by a score of 4-3.

  • Once again, Dillon Gee did not have his best stuff on the mound. He went five innings, giving up four runs on five hits, while striking out three and walking one. He gave up a home run to Justin Upton in the first inning. He got into trouble in the second inning, giving up three runs on back-to-back doubles to Cody Ransom and Ian Kennedy.
  • Jason Bay had another nice day at the plate. He was 3-4 with an RBI and one run scored.
  • The Mets tried to rally in the later innings, with Jason Pridie driving in a run in the eighth inning and Willie Harris bringing home another run in the ninth inning on a sacrifice fly. Old friend, J.J. Putz, was able to get David Wright to ground out to end the game.
  • The Mets were 1-10 with runners in scoring position, and left nine men on base.

Next Up: The Mets and Diamondbacks play the second game of their three-game series Saturday night. Mike Pelfrey gets the start against Daniel Hudson. Game time is 8:10 p.m.
