Diamondbacks Homer 3 Times In 8th, Beat Skidding Mets 7-3

  • The Mets' offense struggles to do much after the second inning

"He's one of the strongest guys in the game and when he is just up there ready to hit when the ball is ready to be hit - if he barrels it, the ball is going to go really hard somewhere, and sometimes it's going to go over the fence". He walked four, struck out five and served up the one home run to Jake Lamb, which is already the 11th he's allowed in 45 1/3 innings.

Against the Mets, Tomas is a lifetime.356 hitter (16-for-45) with six home runs and 15 RBI in 12 games. Of their 23 wins this season, 17 have come at home.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are running wild and free this season and it is helping the Diamondbacks score runs at a relentless pace.

Lamb was intentionally walked to bring up Tomas, who hit Robles' 3-2 pitch far above that same home run line. NY tried to set up a comeback victory scoring three runs in the ninth. He got help from relievers Andrew Chafin, Archie Bradley and Fernando Rodney, who combined to hold NY hitless the rest of the way.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams after pushing yesterday in Arizona's 5-4 victory. With a runner on and two outs in the seventh inning, he cracked a double to left-center field to plate the tying run.

Slumping outfielder Curtis Granderson homered and had two RBIs for NY. While the battle for the fifth starter waged on throughout February and March, manager Terry Collins was seemingly convinced based on what Gsellman did last season to help the team during a playoff chase. "When things aren't going good, nothing goes good".

The Mets took advantage of back-to-back walks by Godley in the second inning.

Mets: SS Asdrubal Cabrera wasn't in the lineup and could be headed for the disabled list with a left thumb injury. Jerry Blevins entered and gave up a one-out bloop single to Rey Fuentes, but center fielder Curtis Granderson threw out Mathis trying to take third base on the hit.

"It was a mix-up between the coaches".

Lovullo said he wants to let the batter impact the game. That is not how we run it. On Tuesday, Goldschmidt became the eighth player in franchise history to steal home. NY has allowed at least four runs in an inning in six straight games.

"We started to get a little confidence as a group", said Mathis, never known for his hitting. However, Collins said he will focus on the positives with his players. I just can't trust the Mets in their current form.

"This was the best I have felt in two years", Harvey told reporters after the game. "I don't sit there and say he shouldn't be here". "I've got to clean it up". Michael Conforto and Juan Lagares also tallied homers off Corbin. With a runner on and one out in the third inning, he hit a 2-0 fastball, clocked at 97-mph, high into the left-field seats to give the D-backs a 3-2 lead. Catcher Rene Rivera has a career high nine-game hitting streak.

Outfielder A.J. Pollock was placed on the 10-day DL with a right groin strain. "I like to play".

"At that point, we felt very good about our chances", D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said. Two other starters - Steven Matz and Seth Lugo - sustained elbow injuries and have yet to pitch this season.

Diamondbacks: OF David Peralta pinch hit for the second consecutive night.

Godley is trying to lock up the fifth spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation after pitching well in his first two starts of the season.

While the final line indicated a mediocre outing with Harvey yielding six hits and his 11th homer in 45 1/3 innings, the righty worked his way out of multiple jams.

While acknowledging, "Losing can be as contagious as winning", Collins said, "We're going to turn this around". With Matt Harvey set to face Patrick Corbin in the pitching matchup, the over/under for today's game sits at 9.5 runs. He recorded the first of his career in his first at-bat against Harvey, lining a 1-2 fastball into the right-field corner to lead off the first inning.
