The Mets were swept for the second straight series, as they lost the series-closer against the Diamondbacks, 5-4, Wednesday afternoon in Arizona.
- The Mets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first but by the third inning, they were trailing. They went back on top in the fourth inning but the game was tied in the seventh and lost in the 11th, the seventh-straight defeat for the club.
- Michael Conforto gave the Mets the early lead with an opposite field homer. Juan Lagares also homered and Jose Reyes, who delivered a three-hit game, drove in the other run.
- The bullpen had a decent day. Josh Edgin, Jerry Blevins and Addison Reed combined for 3.2 scoreless innings. The only run allowed by the pen initially came when Robert Gsellman, moved to a reliever with the off day, allowed the tying run in the seventh. But then Rafael Montero gave exhibit number 497 that he’s not a reliever, as he served up a homer to the first batter he faced. There’s really no reason to have him on the team at this point. Just DFA him and wish his next team luck.
