Diamondbacks 4, Mets 5

There really is no easy way to describe this game, except, "Wow, really?"

Beautiful sunset. Not so beautiful game.

The Diamondbacks took the lead early in this one. Aaron Hill was hit in the ribs and took his base in front of Paul Goldschmidt, who smacked home run #20 to the second level of bleachers in left-center field. In the 2nd inning, Hill had a two-out RBI single for a 3-0 lead.

But Wade Miley didn't make it easy on himself, especially not in the first two innings. Miley gave up two hits and two walks in the 1st, and yet didn't allow a run to cross the plate. He allowed two more hits in the 2nd inning to put runners on the corners with nobody out, and then struck out two to get out of that jam as well. Miley would then retire 11 in a row until the 5th inning, when he gave up a two-out single and a walk, and yet the Mets remained off the scoreboard then as well.

Miley went out to start the 6th inning, but couldn't finish it. Brad Ziegler got out of a runners-on-the-corners situation there, but in the 7th, Ziggy gave up a walk and two singles to put the Mets on the board. David Hernandez allowed a triple and a double in the 8th to give up the second run. J.J. Putz came on in his first save situation since returning from the D.L. and gave up a maybe-home-run, maybe-double (ruled a double) to Marlon Byrd, who scored to tie up the game in the bottom of the 9th inning.

Chaz Roe, called up from Triple-A Reno this afternoon, made his major league debut and pitched the 10th and 11th innings. He walked the bases loaded in that 11th inning, but Tony Sipp got the third out to keep the game going. Once the clock hit midnight in the 13th inning, Cody Ross decided enough was enough, and hit a solo home run to put the Diamondbacks up 4-3.

Except, it wasn't enough. Josh Collmenter came in to pitch the bottom half of the 13th inning, and had his own blown save. Not only that, but he took the loss. A one-out double followed by an intentional walk both came around to score on a two-out Andrew Brown single to the wall in left. Thus ends a chaotic night for the Diamondbacks.
