In their first of three games in Seattle, the Mets lost their third straight game overall. Jon Niese did not look sharp in his return from the disabled list, and the Mets’ lineup struggled to score for the third straight day. As a result, Seattle won 5-2.
While Niese struck out six and walked two in six innings, he gave up a staggering eleven hits and allowed four runs to score. The Mets got their lone run of the evening on a David Wright single in the third, which knotted the game at one at the time, but did little else after that. Travis d’Arnaud had a home run robbed by left fielder Dustin Ackley in the sixth, and the Mets were able to scratch out one run in the ninth on a Robinson Cano error but failed to score more than that.
