Bullpen comes apart at the end failing to maintain a 4-2 lead.

So apparently 100% atmospheric humidity doesn’t prevent a baseball from leaving the yard? Physics was never my forte. The Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets combined for four long balls in the muggy fog of Citi Field. There was a 35 minute delay in getting this contest underway, although there were no heavy rains at the originally scheduled start time. John Ryan Murphy put Arizona on the board first with a single on two outs to score Deven Marrero, hitting ahead of the pitcher Patrick Corbin mind you. New York quickly erased that lead with a two run home run from Michael Conforto in the same inning. Paul Goldschmidt made an appearance in the 4th inning pulling a home run to left field to tie the game. Murphy followed with a two run shot, again with two outs ahead of Corbin, in the same inning to put Arizona ahead 4-2. That lead held until the eighth inning until Archie Bradley surrendered the fourth and final home run of the game, good for two runs off the bat of Devin Mesoraco tying the game. Andrew Chafin failed to keep the game scoreless in the bottom of the 9th surrendering a Wilmer Flores sac fly to give the Mets a walk off.

Full recap will be up later tonight after I scream this one off.
