Matz, Callaway honest after loss 00:01:22
Mickey Callaway believes the Mets have been inconsistent leading to their latest loss. Matz says he didn't deliver in the 7-1 loss.

Mets LHP Steven Matz isn't concerned about his first-inning struggles after he allowed three runs in the opening frame of Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Diamondbacks.

"It's just baseball. Sometimes it goes in waves, you go through streaks," said Matz, who gave up five runs and eight hits in six innings. "I'm just going to go out and continue to attack. Today, I didn't do that. I'm not going to panic about a first-inning issue. I'm going out there to execute pitches, that's what it comes down to. If I don't execute a pitch, I get hurt. That's what I did today: I got hurt early."

Matz surrendered two homers in the first inning, a leadoff homer to Ketel Marte and a two-run blast to Eduardo Escobar, putting the Mets in a 3-0 deficit before even recording an out.

Mets lose 7-1 to Diamondbacks 00:01:28
Wilson Ramos connected for a monstrous home run but that was the only highlight of the Mets 7-1 loss to the Diamondbacks.

The Mets dropped the rubber game of the series against the Diamondbacks, 7-1, to end their West Coast road trip 2-5. >> Box score

Five things to know from Sunday's game

1) Manager Mickey Callaway lauded Steven Matz as the Mets' most consistent starter after his start in Los Angeles. But the left-hander faltered early, as Ketel Marte led off the home half of the first with a 482-foot blast to center field. Tim Locastro, Saturday night's hero, singled and Eduardo Escobar lifted a two-run homer down the line in left to make it 3-0 before Matz had even recorded an out. He settled down from there until two outs in the fifth, when the Diamondbacks recorded four straight singles and pushed across two more runs. By the time he left the mound after the sixth, Matz yielded five earned runs on eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts.

Mets blow lead, lose to D'Backs 00:01:30
The Mets saw a pair of four-run leads vanish as the D'Backs came back to edge the Mets, 6-5 in 11 innings

The Mets' bullpen imploded Saturday night, wasting Jacob deGrom's strong start after deGrom left with an apparent injury, and they ultimately fell to the Diamondbacks in 11 innings, 6-5.  >> Box score

Five things to know about Saturday's game

1) DeGrom got off to a roaring start, his nasty slider helping him get through the first five innings on just 47 pitches. He allowed two baserunners in the sixth before getting away unscathed. With two outs and a runner on second in the seventh, Adeiny Hechavarria stopped a hard grounder but the ball popped up off his glove. He decided to try to get the out at first and made an inaccurate throw, allowing Adam Jones to score.

Mets rally edges Diamondbacks 00:01:04
Mickey Callaway and Zack Wheeler talk about the Mets comeback ability after their 5-4 win over Arizona

The Mets' bullpen had a different look on Friday, but the group got the job done in the Mets' 5-4 victory over Arizona.

After a crazy top of the eighth inning where the Mets jumped in front, Mickey Callaway relied on Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman to pitch the eighth and ninth innings, and the duo delivered.

"The more and more we looked at it, after they played catch they said they were okay. Dave (Eiland) and I talked about it, and (Jeurys) Familia and (Edwin) Diaz were down," Callaway said. "They have thrown five out of eight. Today would have been another three out of four for both of them. They've thrown a ton of pitches, and we just couldn't do it.

"I think taking care of our players and putting them in a good spot is always something that we're going to think about, as well as winning, and we had Lugo and Gsellman. Thank goodness (Zack) Wheeler stepped up and went seven for us. That was huge. Now, both Familia and Diaz have had two days off, and we're caught up. We felt like if we would have pitched them today, man, we're going to be trying to catch up for another week. Lugo and Gsellman stepped up big-time and got the job done."

Mets edge D'Backs 00:01:23
The Mets saw an early 3-run lead disappear but rallied in the 8th inning to edge the Diamondbacks, 5-4

The Mets found some two-out magic in the eighth inning, and Zack Wheeler went seven innings in the Mets' 5-4 victory on Friday night at Chase Field >> Box score

Five things to know about Friday's game

1) The Mets benefited from a wild eighth inning. With two outs and nobody on, Todd Frazier blooped a single into right field. After an Adeiny Hechavarria single, J.D. Davis was called upon as a pinch-hitter in a huge spot. With runners on the corner and two outs, Davis dribbled an infield single to second base, off the glove of Arizona pitcher Matt Andriese, tying the game at 4-4. The next batter, Carlos Gomez, lined a pinch-hit double down the third-base line. The ball was picked up inadvertently by a staff member, but it was enough to score Frazier and give the Mets the lead.

The Mets close out the month of May with the first of three games against the Diamondbacks on Friday at 9:40 p.m. on SNY.

Mets notes

Despite dropping three out of four to the Dodgers, the Mets are 6-4 in their last 10 games. ... The road has not been kind to the Mets this season, as they've lost 15 of their last 18 road games. Their overall .375 winning percentage on the road is the second-lowest in the NL, ahead of only the Marlins. ... Pete Alonso has recorded 32 extra-base hits in the Mets' first 56 games, the most in team history. ... The Mets haven't won a series in Arizona since a three-game sweep of the D'backs in 2014.

The Yankees lost to the Diamondbacks, 3-2, at Chase Field on Wednesday afternoon to end their West Coast road trip. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Wednesday's game...

1 ) Masahiro Tanaka limited the scoring damage, but he was far from sharp in this game, lasting just four innings. Tanaka continually left off-speed pitches up in the zone and he was tagged as a consequence. His final line - 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB and 6 K - marks the third start in his last four in which he failed to generate a quality start. Tanaka's ERA jumped to 3.92 after today's performance.

It's official: Wilmer Flores is no longer a Met.

Flores signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday that includes a team option for 2020. He will earn $3.75 million in 2019, and the deal has a $6 million team option with a $500,000 buyout for 2020, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan

Flores took to Instagram to thank the Mets and their fans, as they were the only franchise he had been with since turning pro as a 16-year-old in 2008.

Does A.J. Pollock make sense? 00:01:39
Steve Gelbs and Jim Duquette break down whether it makes sense for the Mets to pursue outfielder A.J. Pollock.

The Mets' outfield already consists of Michael ConfortoBrandon Nimmo and Juan Lagares, and they have Yoenis Cespedes waiting once he returns from surgery.

But should the Mets make a run at free-agent outfielder A.J. Pollock?

Pollock, 31, recorded a .257/.316/.484 batting line with 21 home runs and 65 RBIs in 113 games with Arizona last season. He hasn't played a full season since 2015, when he was an All-Star and hit .315 with 20 home runs and 76 RBIs.

Amid the rumors that the Diamondbacks could deal first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, the Yankees are reportedly not showing significant interest in the six-time All-Star, according to Fancred Sports' Jon Heyman.

Arizona, Heyman reported on Tuesday, has been willing to listen to offers for players like Goldschmidt and pitcher Zack Greinke, however a rival executive told Heyman he believed a trade of Goldschmidt was "remote."

The 31-year-old Goldschmidt hit .290 with 33 home runs and 83 RBIs for the Diamondbacks last season. He has hit at least .290 with an OPS of at least .899 in each of the past six seasons with three top-three MVP finishes.

Zack Wheeler again looked terrific on Sunday, providing further evidence he has clearly turned a physical and psychological corner in his career.

In Sunday's game, he retired 10 straight batters before the D-backs started forcing him to change his gameplan. And he did, which is what has been most impressive about his time on the mound this year. In the end, Wheeler tossed 97 pitches, went six innings, allowed two earned runs and three hits, walked two and struck out eight.

He has a 1.93 ERA in his past three starts. And, in a situation that could make only Jacob deGrom jealous, the Mets are 1-5 during Wheeler's previous five starts, despite his 3.68 ERA.

"To come back and get a win like that," manager Mickey Callaway told reporters after the game, "that was something that we were doing early on, feels like three years old, but that was a really good win for us."
