Mets bats go silent in loss to Diamondbacks

The New York Mets suffered a 3-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday afternoon at Citi Field as the bats went quiet.

New York had just five hits and Jeff McNeil collected two of them.

Carlos Carrasco started for the Mets and tossed five shutout innings while allowing just three hits. Carrasco also racked up eight strikeouts, but received a no decision.


New York’s middle relief guys struggled as Joely Rodríguez allowed a run and Seth Lugo allowed the game-tying run and the go-ahead run. Trevor May and Adam Ottavino each fired a scoreless inning.

It was a scoreless game until the seventh inning when Sergio Alcantara homered to right-center to give the Diamondbacks a 2-0 lead. Later in the inning, Ketel Marte lined a RBI double to right to extend the lead.

Starling Marte put the Mets on the board in the eighth with a two-run shot to left-center, which was his second home run in as many games.

The Mets will try to take two of three from Arizona on Sunday afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 1:40 p.m.
