Mets earn comeback win as they look to gain All Star Break momentum

The Mets erased an early 3-0 deficit with runs in the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings before eventually winning in the 13th on a two run single from Andrew Brown. The Diamondbacks had regained the lead in the top of the 13th on a solo home run by Cody Ross.

The Mets were able to tie it up in the bottom of the ninth as Josh Satin came thru with one of his three hits to drive in Marlon Byrd. The Mets left 20 men on base during the 13 innings, but were able to get the hits that mattered, including Brown’s hit that came with two outs and the bases loaded in the 13th.

While the Mets are still over 10 games back in both the divisional and wild card races, they have won six of 10 and are playing better overall. Satin has been a revelation, hitting .395 this year and has seen increased playing time since Ike Davis’ demotion.

They still also have the dominant pitching of Matt Harvey to fall back on and recently added another player they hope will be an ace in Zack Wheeler. Wheeler has been up and down so far in three starts but has shown excellent stuff despite his inconsistent command.

If the Mets offense can get some sparks, it is too early to declare this Mets season over. They have a chance to pitch the ball really well and in the National League that will keep you in contention.
