Despite a lackluster start from Peterson, the Mets fight to earn the series win in Arizona.

After what started out as a battle of the bats, the Mets and Diamondbacks settled into a battle of the bullpens. The Mets and Diamondbacks both started out big, each scoring five runs across the first two innings of the game. For the Mets, they got six hits before recording a single out, including a James McCann three run home run. The Diamondbacks responded with a two run homer from Ketel Marte and knocked out Peterson in the first inning before he could record two outs. Madison Bumgarner exited after two innings, and the bullpens kept the run scoring to a minimum after that.

Gsellman three 3.2 scoreless innings, Lugo threw two innings in his season debut and only allowed one run, and Miguel Castro threw two scoreless innings. Lindor hit a double in the ninth, and he was driven in by Pete Alonso to pull ahead of the Diamondbacks with just a half-inning to go. Edwin Díaz came in to save the game, and save it he did, not allowing a single base runner and giving the Mets the series win. The Mets head to sunny San Diego to start a four game series against the Padres tomorrow.

Full recap to follow.
