Francisco Lindor had a 4-hit game while J.D. Martinez broke a late tie with a home run to power the Mets to a 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks Thursday night at Citi Field. The win snapped a three-game losing streak and was just the second victory in the last 10 games for the Mets.

Lindor crushed a solo home run in the third inning to cut the deficit in half at 2-1. In the seventh he tied the game with an RBI single. His big day at the plate raised his OPS to .687 on the year.

Martinez delivered a solo homer in the eighth inning for the game-winner. It was his fourth homer of the season and gave him his 12th RBI as a Met.

Christian Scott got the start and was lifted after 5 IP and 2 ER in 91 pitches. Adrian Houser came of to give two scoreless innings before yielding to Danny Young, who was credited with the win after his scoreless inning with two strikeouts. Reed Garrett issued a leadoff walk in the ninth but retired the next three batters to earn his third save of the year.

    If you thought it was a while since the Mets won a series opener, you’d be right.
    Last 11 series just 1-10 in openers prior to the win today.

    It was a throwback April type win – starter goes less than <6 innings, but bullpen throws up zeros, and the magic of the 8th inning.

      Mr. Name
      I hope you recognize my admiration for the person who causes me think to myself
      “Say his name”

      But do you consider yourself a Mets Fan
      Or are you just their arch-critic?

    This game was clearly the FL show
    Interesting that he’s the one who called the team meeting yesterday

    Kinda surprised that PA got that pinch 2B
    He appeared to be lunging for the previous off-the-plate sliders
    Not to mention getting hit on the hand the day before

    A win! The Mets came back. The pen closed it out. A series opener win. A 4 hit game for Francisco. Thank you sirs, may we have another?

    Gut Reaction: A Win! Scott pitched a good game. He retired the side in the fifth inning and he threw 91 pitches for a game but wasn’t allowed be go out the the six inning. Houser pitches two scoreless inning and get in a jam but gets out of it with strikeouts. He threw 28 pitches but wasn’t allowed the pitch in the eight inning. Young and Garrett close it out for the win. I’ll glad they won but I’m concerned about how they did it with pitching.
    Scott and Baty were optioned, Narvaez DFA and Torrens was purchased from the Yankees this morning. Iglesias and Nunez are on the roster.

      SNY reports the Mets sent the Yankees $100,000 for Torrens, which seems a lot for a guy who should be in the majors for a week.

      Baty needed to go down. Scott didn’t. I’d rather see Scott and Butto in the majors than Nunez and Danny Young.

        Why not keep Narvaez til Alvarez gets back?

        • Brian Joura

          Since 2022, he has a 60 OPS+/61 wRC+ and 33 of the 35 runners who’ve attempted to steal against him this year have been successful. I think a better question is: Why did they keep him this long?
