After the teams traded zeroes through three innings, the D-backs got on the board first, with Yasmany Tomas’s 23rd home-run of the year in the fourth. Unfortunately, Braden Shipley was unable to deliver a shutdown inning, allowing four runs in the fifth, including a two-run homer to the opposing pitcher, Noah Syndergaard. The Mets added three more in the sixth for a 7-1 lead, and Shipley’s night was done after 5.2 innings, allowing six earned runs on 10 hits and a walk, without a strikeout.
However, the D-backs did come back, with debutant Mitch Haniger getting a two-run triple to key a three-run sixth, then adding an RBI double in the seventh. He became the first Arizona player with two extra-base hits in his major-league debut, and his five total bases hasn’t been surpassed since Travis Lee had six in the franchise’s first ever game, back in 1998. Haniger’s three RBI was also a team record for a MLB debut. Jean Segura picked up three hits for the Diamondbacks, while Paul Goldschmidt and Welington Castillo each reached base twice, with a hit and a walk.
