Diamondbacks 3 Mets 2


For many years the Slutskys have gone to the first Saturday afternoon game of the season at Shea Stadium and then at Citi Field.  The Mets started the season at 6-2 while things looked up for the Amazins.  Any organization is as good as its weakest point.  Today the bullpen didn't perform as Seth Lugo gave up a two-run homer to Sergio Alcantara. Ketel Marte's double drove in a third run for the Diamondbacks which was enough to beat the Mets.  The only highlight for the Mets was a two-run homer by Starlin Marte which was just not enough.

The five Met pitchers struck out 16 Diamondbacks, but what good is that when you lose the game?

Before the game, Lee and I stopped by the statue of Tom Seaver that was unveiled yesterday.  Below is a picture of Lee who was born after Tom retired.
