Goat Of The Game: Tim Byrdak- 0.2 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 1 BB
- Jeremy Hefner pitched surprisingly well. Of course you can’t expect him to outduel Stephen Strasburg, but he kept the Mets in the game. Today’s loss was all on the offense.
- The Mets were held to just four hits this afternoon. The only bright spot (sort of) was Ike Davis, who hit his 16th home run of the season.
- David Wright had a rough day, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. His batting average is now at .340.
- The Mets take on the Diamondbacks at 9:40 tomorrow night in Arizona. Matt Harvey will make his first MLB start against Wade Miley.
