The Mets first run came in the second when Rene Rivera drove in a run with single to right.

It wasn’t until the ninth inning when the Mets were able to get back into the run column.

Wilmer Flores chipped in a two-run hone run, but it wouldn’t prove to matter much as the Diamonbacks held on to a four-run lead to win 7-3.

The Mets will look to sort things out and get back into the win column on Tuesday, as Tommy Milone takes on Zack Greinke.
