The Mets followed up Matt Harvey's excellent debut with a loss in which the team's pitchers surrendered eleven runs in rather ugly fashion. Jon Niese gave up eight runs in total, six of which scored in the second inning. Of the six, one scored when Niese issued a bases-loaded walk, and two scored on an ill-advised throwing error by Niese with the bases loaded.

Before that, the Mets actually had a two-run lead, and in the top of the third, David Wright hit a three-run home run to pull the team within one. After that, the bats went silent, and Elvin Ramirez gave up three more runs in the seventh.

We knew it was over when...

The Diamondbacks scored three in the seventh. There was at least some chance of a comeback with the Mets down three.

What else?

  • Ruben Tejada went 2-for-5.
  • Manny Acosta pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
