The Mets scored two unearned runs in the first. They came after an error charged to Daniel Descalso, though Ketel Marte’s throw to second, on a force attempt, was not the greatest. That proved to be enough for the Mets, as the D-backs could manage only one run, on Jake Lamb’s RBI double in the sixth inning. The D-backs were held to two runs or fewer for their fifth consecutive game, the longest such streak since they went six in September 2014. [The franchise record, incidentally, is nine straight in July 2003].
Zack Godley’s control was wobbly early, but he lasted six innings and allowed just one earned run, that coming in the fifth. He allowed four hits, walked four and struck out six. There were scoreless innings from Andrew Chafin and Fernando Salas, but the offense was the real culprit here. Paul Goldschmidt picked up a golden sombrero, while Daniel Descalso had two of the Diamondbacks’ six hits. The team collectively struck out sixteen times, while drawing no walks.
