After being just one strike away from tying up the series, the Diamondbacks bullpen suffered yet another collapse, resulting in a 2-1 loss.

The rookie Tommy Henry provided six shutout innings; it was his fourth consecutive quality start and second shutout on the season.

However, this beautiful outing would go to waste as he exited with the scoreboard reading 0-0.

It was not until the 7th inning that the Diamondbacks would finally breakthrough offensively. On the second pitch of the inning, Christian Walker blasted a 434-foot bomb into the left field bleachers.

It seemed as if this solo shot would be enough; at one point, the Diamondbacks held a 96.8% chance of coming out victorious.

The Mets were down to their final out when Francisco Alvarez tied the game up on the seventh pitch of the at-bat.

Following this solo shot, a grounder in the gap and a Mark Canha triple would hand the Mets a 2-1 lead.

Diamondbacks closer, Andrew Chafin, was forced to exit the game without ever getting that dreaded final out.

The blown save extends the D-backs’ losing streak to three games, matching a season-high. Additionally, their lead over the Dodgers for first place in the NL West has shrunk to just 1.5 games.
