Diamondbacks 2, Mets 4: Doubleheader Split

Mike Stobe

After the promising start to the doubleheader earlier in the day, hopes were high, at least on my side of the screen. However, it really wasn't to be. I feel like I've said that a lot this season.

Record: 20-32, On Pace: 62-100, Change on '04/'10/'13: +1/+/-0/-10

After a quiet exchange of zeros in the first inning, the Diamondbacks jumped on top in the second with a two run inning. Aaron Hill lead it off with a single, and was quickly brought home by Martin "I can too hit something other than a single" Prado triple. Prado then scored when Ross hit grounded out to short stop, but did get the RBI. Chris Owings then grounded out to the pitcher, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Sir Tuffy Gosewisch struck out to end the inning, and the Dbacks offense for the afternoon.

Because, seriously folks, that was it. They completely failed to deliver some final, crushing blow to the Mets, and thus they were left to creep back into the game. And they wasted no time in creeping, either. In the bottom of the same inning, Matsuzaka got an RBI single that scored Wilmer Flores, making the score 2-1.

The lead managed to last until the bottom of the fifth, when Bobby Abreu proved that he really should retire already... and hit an RBI double to tie the game at two. Then we were losing by the end of the sixth inning, after Ruben Tejada pinch hit for Matsuzaka, and he hit a single, scoring Anthony Recker. 3-2 New York.

The Mets added another run in the eighth, but it wasn't really needed. The Dbacks went quietly into the night and back to Arizona with a final score of 4-2.
