"Made a couple mistakes but that happens but keep moving forward". It was the 11th home run Harvey has given up so far this season, according to Kristie Ackert at The New York Daily News.
Paul Goldschmidt stole home when NY botched a rundown, and Yasmany Tomas hit another home run against the reeling Mets to help Arizona hang on for a 5-4 victory Tuesday night. "He's one of the strongest guys in the game and when he is just up there ready to hit when the ball is ready to be hit - if he barrels it, the ball is going to go really hard somewhere, and sometimes it's going to go over the fence". "The one ball exploded off his bat when he hit a home run", Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.
Arizona Diamondbacks' Chris Herrmann (10) celebrates his walk-off home run during the 11th inning of a baseball game against the New York Mets, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Phoenix. It will be the first real game action for both since spring training. Rafael Montero surrendered a walk-off home run to Chris Herrmann in the eleventh inning as the Diamondbacks won 5-4.
Tommy Milone (1-1) gave up six hits and five runs in 5 2/3 innings.
Rodney worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his 10th save. The Mets went home but the throw was late and Goldschmidt scored the fourth run.
Slumping outfielder Curtis Granderson homered and had two RBIs for NY.
"Today for me is a huge step for Matt to get out there and feel good about himself when he leaves the game today", Collins said. So they come up here, the deliveries are god, the stuff is good and they've pitching pitching all summer or hitting all summer and they kind of get right in the swing of things.
It's the D-Backs' third walk-off win of 2017 and the Mets' third walk-off loss of the season. For the third time this season, Wheeler allowed one run or fewer in his start.
The slumping slugger struck out looking with the bases loaded in the third and again with one on in the fifth. Andrew McCutchen went 2 for 4 with two RBIs and also stole two bases for Pittsburgh. "That was not the play", Lovullo said. That is not how we run it. They had not endured two losing streaks of at least six games in the same season since 2013.
"You get exhausted behind the plate, and my knees were starting to hurt a little bit", he said.
Duda said he has not been playing well for a week.
And only Harvey could say whether or not the taunt in Arizona got to him, but the timing and the outcome were coincidental enough that they couldn't be ignored. "I've got to clean it up".
Granderson hit his third homer leading off the fifth to make it 4-2. After that the Mets will play a six-game homestand against the Los Angeles Angels and San Diego. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a low-grade right groin strain a day after he injured it running to first base on a single. I like to be there.
Steven Matz and Seth Lugo are each scheduled to pitch two innings Thursday for Single-A St. Lucie in rehab appearances.
Diamondbacks: OF David Peralta pinch hit for the second consecutive night. Corbin will get the Mets and White Sox in his next two starts.
In matters related, the Mets also have eight players presently on the DL. He recorded the first of his career in his first at-bat against Harvey, lining a 1-2 fastball into the right-field corner to lead off the first inning.
Jorge De La Rosa (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning for the win, helping the Diamondbacks improve to 16-8 at home.
