Meet The Mets
The Mets fell to the Diamondbacks 7-4 last night on the back of a poor return outing from Tommy Milone. Making his first start since being activated from the disabled list, Milone pitched 4.2 innings, allowing six runs (five earned) while striking out five. Patrick Corbin held the Mets in check, striking out six batters over eight innings while allowing just one run. A ninth-inning rally, which included extra-base hits from Dominic Smith and Amed Rosario,brought in three runs, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Arizona.
Despite a disappointing start on Monday night, the Mets are looking to activate Matt Harvey in early September.
