After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the
box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s
time to go Inside the Box for April 24, 2011:
Mets 8, Diamondbacks 4
This was difficult. You start the road trip with consecutive wins and then lose four days in a row.
The positive from Sunday for the Diamondbacks would be Stephen Drew. He went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI. Drew is now hitting .344 on the season.
Unfortunately it was Armando Galarraga’s outing. The reason it’s unfortunate is because he only lasted three innings and gave up six runs but only two of those were earned. A Ryan Roberts error in the third inning would help the Mets score four and push the lead to 6-0.
Sunday was Galarraga’s first loss on the season. He is now 3-1 with an ERA of 6.00. Yes, an ERA of 6.00. As long as you are getting wins, your ERA doesn’t matter too much.
