Diamondbacks vs. Mets rained out in New York

The Diamondbacks game against the Mets in New York was rained out in the middle of the fourth inning, with Arizona holding a 2-0 lead. It'll be made up as part of a double-header on Sunday.

Arizona took a 2-0 lead in the second inning, on Aaron Hill's fifth home-run of the season, though that will now be washed away with the rainout, as if it never happened. The same goes for Chase Anderson's four innings of shutout ball, though at least he will get another chance to go for his third win in a row next week - if the game had restarted, he would have been replaced on the mound, and would not have been in line for the win, because he hadn't pitched the required five innings.

Let the record show that there were also hits for Paul Goldschmidt, Miguel Montero and A.J. Pollock - though the record won't actually show any of them. Goldie also stole a base. No word as yet on how the Diamondbacks will handle the double-header on Sunday: it seems likely an extra pitcher will be needed, so we may see the return of Mike Bolsinger from Reno, for one day only, or we may get Zeke Spruill up instead.
