Final Score: Diamondbacks 2, Mets 1—Double plays galore in the first game of doubleheader

New, 27 comments

The Mets hit into a lot of double plays and gave up the deciding run in game one of the doubleheader on an error.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets had plenty of chances to score more than one run against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but they failed to do so and lost 2-1. And Arizona’s second run scored as Daniel Murphy failed to catch a throw from David Wright at second base that would have kept the game tied at one in the top of the ninth inning. Of course, not all of the blame for the loss can be placed on Murphy’s error, as the Mets grounded into a staggering five double plays, four of which were inning-ending.

Rafael Montero had a very nice outing, as he gave up just one run on a solo home run by Chris Owings but struck out ten and walked three in six innings of work. And the Mets’ bullpen kept the Diamondbacks from scoring again over the two-and-two-thirds innings preceding Murphy’s error in the ninth.

Halfway through the Sunday afternoon doubleheader, the Mets are 21-27 on the season.
