The Mets treated their fans to yet another extra innings game yesterday, losing to the Diamondbacks in 15 innings. Dillon Gee continued his recent run of good performances, throwing 7 solid innings and allowing just a pair of runs in the 5th. The full boxscore can be fond here.
The team made a move after the game, designating Brandon Lyon for assignment and calling up Greg Burke to take his spot in the bullpen. Adam Rubin reported that another move is probably coming, with the Mets intending to have Ike Davis meet them in Milwaukee on Friday. There is no word yet on who would be demoted to make room for Davis on the roster.
Today is the day that we'll find out if David Wright will deservingly start the All-Star game at Citifield, as the rosters will be announced at 6:30 p.m. ET.
The Marlins played the Braves in front of actual fans in Atlanta, and managed to win to pull themselves within four games of the Mets for the bottom spot in the division. Seriously guys, the Marlins are only four games behind the Mets.
