The Arizona Diamondbacks are running wild and free this season and it is helping the Diamondbacks score runs at a relentless pace.
"It's what we're going through right now", manager Terry Collins said. The Diamondbacks will go with Monday call-up Rey Fuentes and veteran Gregor Blanco in center field for the time being. This loss also marks the first time the Mets have been at least seven games under.500 since September of 2014. An umpire review overturned the call when replays showed the ball hitting the yellow line below the batter's eye in center field, which is in play.
And they had not finished winless on a road trip of at last six games since September 1999.
Gregor Blanco had a two-run single for the Diamondbacks, now 6-1 in their last seven games against NY. The D-backs, meanwhile, roughed up Weaver for five runs on six hits including three home runs in 5.2 innings.
Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Zack Godley throws against the New York Mets during the sixth inning of a baseball game, Monday, May 15, 2017, in Phoenix. Brandon Drury then doubled and scored on the Mathis homer, and Robles was done. It was Descalso's fourth pinch-hit home run of his career.
And only Harvey could say whether or not the taunt in Arizona got to him, but the timing and the outcome were coincidental enough that they couldn't be ignored.
Jorge De La Rosa (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win. Wheeler tossed six innings, struck out six and walked one. Two batters after Paul Goldschmidt narrowly missed a go-ahead solo homer, Robles served up a three-run shot to Yasmany Tomas, who crushed a 97 miles per hour fastball off the batter's eye well above the 25-foot fence in straightaway center.
Lovullo said nothing was supposed to happen on that play.
Orioles blow early lead to drop series finale in Detroit, 6-5
Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch from Detroit's starting lineup Wednesday night against Baltimore because of a sore left side. Martinez is working on five-days rest after allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings Saturday against the Athletics.
Japan cabinet approves bill allowing emperor's abdication
But current Japanese law has no provision for abdication, thus requiring politicians to craft legislation to make it possible. Only males can inherit the throne and there was a succession crisis until 2006 as both the emperor's sons had only daughters.
McConnell: I recommended Merrick Garland to be Federal Bureau of Investigation chief
Trump himself has said it is possible he would choose someone before he departs for a foreign trip on Friday. In his Tuesday interview, McConnell also said he does not think a border adjustment tax can pass the Senate.
Harvey started the season with a 2.84 ERA through four starts before yielding 17 runs in 142/3 innings his previous three outings, all losses. "I like to play".
[FiveThirtyEight] The Best Teams Of Baseball's 2015 Season Are Bums In 2017 - Since the League Championship Series format began in 1969, it's tough to find a "Final Four" of baseball that's fallen on harder times two years later than 2015's quartet of the Kansas City Royals, New York Mets, Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays. He permitted one run and seven hits, struck out six and walked one.
"I didn't have my greatest stuff", Godley said. The decision backfired in a big way, as Harvey allowed a leadoff infield single to Keon Broxton before giving up back-to-back homers to Eric Sogard and Orlando Arcia.
But he hasn't looked like the same pitcher and the Mets aren't really sure why. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a low-grade right groin strain a day after he was injured running to first base on a single. No timetable was set for his return, but Pollock said it "is not a significant injury by any means". David Peralta was out of the lineup after leaving Sunday's game with right glute tightness.
Ron Gardenhire was back as bench coach for the Diamondbacks. Gardenhire left the team after the game on April 9 to undergo prostate surgery on April 18.
Montero (0-3) relieved to start the 11th, and Herrmann worked the count full, fouled off a pitch and connected on a belt-high fastball for his first game-ending home run in the major leagues.
