Final Score: Diamondbacks 2, Mets 1—Colon not enough to win over date with Snakes

New, 28 comments

Bartolo Colon pitched well enough to win, but his team did not hit well enough to do so.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The night after striking out four times in his Diamondbacks debut, Wellington Castillo drilled a two-run homer with two outs in the seventh which was the difference tonight. Up until that point, Bartolo Colon (L, 8-4) was masterful. Colon finished with five hits allowed, one walk, and seven strikeouts over seven innings, along with the two earned runs.

The Mets only run came via a solo home run by Juan Lagares, as the offense had another frustrating evening.  New York managed ten hits but left eight on base while grounding into four inning-killing double plays, including one that ended the game after the Mets got two on with one out in the ninth.

Colon went 1-for-3 at the plate with a rip single, which gives him a higher batting average (.167) than two position players in the lineup tonight (Danny Muno, Anthony Recker).  Lucas Duda was 0-for-4 with 3 LOB and is currently mired in a 2-for-25 skid.

The Mets now are 2-4 on this West Coast swing, and look to Jacob deGrom to try and split this series tomorrow afternoon.
