Steal of home helps Diamondbacks sink reeling Mets, 5-4


A leadoff homer by Yasmany Tomas in the sixth gave Arizona an insurance run it would need, and the bullpen got the job done again.

"Nice to see Yaz hit a couple of balls very hard to the right side of the diamond".

"Nothing. Zero. Zippo", Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. He allowed a two-run single to Gregor Blanco and a two-out RBI single to Chris Owings, and the Diamondbacks added another run when the Mets botched a rundown play. He will look to continue this splendid season in a home start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber. After having walked just nine batters in the first 51.2 innings he pitched this season, Greinke walked two in a third of an inning with two baserunners on to bring home a run for the Mets.

Greinke surrendered four runs over 6.2 innings - the second-highest run total he's allowed all season. He got help from relievers Andrew Chafin, Archie Bradley and Fernando Rodney, who combined to hold NY hitless the rest of the way.

Three Arizona relievers got the final seven outs, with Fernando Rodney pitching a 1-2-3 ninth for his 10th save in 12 chances.

"Flawless defense, scored five runs".

Edelweiss Financial Q4 net rises 40% to Rs 170 crore
Full year income was marginally down at Rs 20,304.72 crore from Rs 20,795.07 crore a year ago. Net NPAs too fell to 7.81 percent in the March quarter, from 8.61 percent a year ago.

"That was pretty huge", Greinke said of getting out of the inning.

The Mets are 1-7 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series, 1-5 in Harveys last 6 road starts and 0-5 in Harveys last 5 starts. Jerry Blevins entered and gave up a one-out bloop single to Rey Fuentes, but center fielder Curtis Granderson threw out Mathis trying to take third base on the hit.

"We're scuffling right now". He wound up allowing one run on seven hits and a walk in six-plus innings.

The Diamondbacks took the lead with four runs off Milone in the third.

Blanco stole second before Goldschmidt was intentionally walked with two outs. Rivera retrieved the ball and threw out Owings attempting to reach third.

Lovullo said it was safe to say Godley had earned another start. It was blind luck. Three of the losses came in Milwaukee, including a game in which the Mets coughed up a six-run lead (the club's biggest lost lead since 1995), capped by Addison Reed allowing a go-ahead three-run homer to Manny Pina in the bottom of the eighth.

US, Europe discuss new laptop ban on flights
A ban would affect major European airlines, including British Airways and Virgin, and would probably also extend to U.S. carriers. The existing in-cabin device bans focus on the Middle East and North Africa, so traveler reaction has been relatively isolated.

"We use him often because he has such a great arm", Collins said, "but when you've got to make pitches, he has had a tough time making the quality pitch he needs to make".

Duda said he has not been playing well for a week. I just can't trust the Mets in their current form. "But that's no excuse and I'll get better".

"I didn't have my greatest stuff", Godley said. "Just put my head down and tried to get home as quickly as I could". He hit a solo homer in the fifth. So if the play was on and we were supposed to run it the right way, that is not how we run it. Arizona (22-18) ended a two-game losing streak and sent the Mets to their fifth straight loss.

To make room for Ramirez on the 40-man roster, the Mets moved closer Jeurys Familia on the 60-day disabled list. Arizona OF David Peralta (glute tightness) did not start on Monday but came off the bench to pinch-hit after being removed from Sunday's game as a precaution.
