He pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up four hits and five runs with two walks, Rauch pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up four hits and three runs with a walk. Josh Edgin pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up one hit and striking out three and Erik Turgeon pitched one inning giving up one hit.

Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy each drew a walk and so did David Wright. Ike Davis had a hit and two RBI, Jason Bay drew a walk and Lucas Duda had a hit. Mike Nickeas drew a walk, Davis had a homerun. The Mets were 0-3 with runners in scoring position and they left six men on base.
