The Diamondbacks got to Steven Matz and the Mets early, and handed the Mets yet another rubber-game loss this Sunday afternoon.
Surely the team will be happy to have a day off tomorrow, their first in three weeks, as well as happy to be back in New York after a rough road trip to the West where they went 2-5.
Today’s game saw an end to a productive run for Matz, who gave up five earned in six innings. The scoring started in the first inning with Ketel Marte hitting a home run and Eduardo Escobar following two batters later. The next play was an error by J.D. Davis, but fortunately outs started to finally come. Some positives were that Matz settled until there were two outs in the fifth inning when another Diamondbacks rally was started. Another positive was that the back-end of the Mets’ bullpen was given a day of rest. That’s about where the positives end.
Oh except for that the Mets can’t lose tomorrow!
