Ryan Roberts hit a three run homerun in the fifth inning to give the Diamondbacks a 5-4 lead. In the sixth inning the Diamondbacks would score the final run of the game on a Daniel Hudson RBI single.

Pelfrey met with manger Terry Collins in his office before the game. It was a closed door chat sparked by Pelfrey being critical of the team the day before. Pelfrey wanted to make everything right by going out and piching a great game. He was hit in the elbow by a line drive and really didn’t have that chance. The Mets have now lost four straight games. Pelfrey wanted to stay in the game but Collins wasn’t going to let him. X-rays taken during the game were negative. The Mets will try to avoid the sweep on Sunday afternoon.
