Diamondbacks 2, Mets 4

Mike Stobe

The Dbacks offense continued its stretch of being offensive in the second half of the double header, only managing six base-runners, two runs, with seven strikeouts. According to Fangdango in the Gameday Thread, we've only been averaging two runs a game since the 18 run outburst against LA. Not exactly a recipe for winning a baseball game, and that was born out in the final score as the Mets beat the Dbacks by a score of 2-4.

One bright spot for the Diamondbacks was their pitching. Zeke Spruill pitched well, only giving up three runs over five and a third innings. After that he was relieved by Trevor Cahill and Joe Thatcher who combined for two and two third inning of one run baseball to continue to keep the team in the game, but it wasn't to be.

Something else of note, Aaron Hill was removed from the game in the seventh inning after fouling a ball off his ankle. Official word is that is was just a precautionary measure, but still kind of scary for the team. Losing a player like Hill would be a big deal eve for a good team. I'd hate to see what it does to a team like the Dbacks who were struggling to begin with. If there is any more news about Hill, you'll be able to find it here, along with the full recap of today's game, which will be following shortly.
