Recker ties game with a homer in the 13th, but the celebration didn’t last long for Mets
The Mets played their hearts out and battled hard, but ultimately they would fall to the Arizona Diamondbacks by the score of 5-4 this afternoon at Citi Field in a 15 inning marathon.
Here’s the short and sweet…
Dillon Gee started and delivered a quality outing holding the D’backs to two runs in seven innings while striking out six. He left with the game tied at 2-2.
In the 13th inning, David Aardsma gave up the tie-breaking run after walking Cody Ross with the bases loaded. Then with the Mets down to their last out in the bottom of the inning, Anthony Recker blasted a solo shot to knot it up again and the games goes on.
In the 14th, it would be Brandon Lyon‘s turn to allow the D-Backs to take the lead, this time it was Martin Prado who drove home the run. But the Mets wouldn’t go down without a fight and Kirk Nieuwenhuis would tie the game again with a solo homerun of his own… Wow… Onto the 15th…
The D-backs finally took the lead for good when Scott Rice allowed a Cliff Pennington RBI single in the 15th inning. The Mets almost came back again, but almost doesn’t count, and Brad Ziegler held them off for the save. Boo!!!
