The New York Mets (16-16) came out on the wrong side of a high-scoring affair on Friday night, losing 10-8 to the Tampa Bay Rays (15-18) at Tropicana Field.

Brett Baty had a three-run home run and a solo shot for New York as part of a three-hit game, but it wasn’t enough as the pitching really struggled.

Jose Quintana allowed eight runs on 10 hits in 2.2 innings, while Dedniel Nunez and Jore Lopez also gave up runs.

Francisco Lindor drove in two with a double, Pete Alonso plated one with a double, and Starling Marte had a sacrifice fly.

Box Score

Christian Scott will make his Major League debut on Saturday as the Mets look to bounce back and even the series. The first pitch is set for 7:15 p.m.
