The Dbacks held the lead until the 7th inning, lost the game in the 10th

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Diamondbacks News:

Diamondbacks 4, Mets 5

The Dbacks got all of their run scoring out the way early, and wrapped up the offense after the 3rd inning. Starting pitcher Zac Gallen was pretty good as usual, though not his best, he still had the win locked up after 6 innings. In the 7th Caleb Smith took the mound and promptly blew the save and the Mets tied things up at 4-4. In the 8th, 9th, and 10th innings the Diamondbacks offense produced big shiny goose-eggs, and 10th inning pitcher Stephan Crichton showed us all what the bullpen is made of - free walks - and a run scored - game over - walk off loss. *HEAVY SIGH.

Former Diamondbacks legendary ACE, Wade Miley (Reds) throws no-hitter against Cleveland

From the article: As for Miley, he leaned heavily on the cutter that revived his career and dodged hard contact almost all night thanks to his mixing up of locations and speed and working quickly. He also had much success working inside against the abundance of right-handed bats in the Cleveland lineup. Of note is that Cleveland came in ranking just 13th in the American League with a team batting average of just .212.
