METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 28, 2012 GAME:
August 21, 2012
I attended this game at Chase Field. Ike Davis hit three home runs in his first three at-bats, but unfortunately for the Mets, he hit all of his home runs with the bases empty and the Mets could score no other runs. His first two home runs were nearly identical, both deep shots above the line on the wall in center field. His third home run was a line drive down the right field line into the Mets' bullpen.
Trailing 6-3 in the top of the seventh, David Wright led off with a walk. Davis followed with a chance to hit his fourth home run, and he delivered a single. The Mets were now threatening with two runners on base and none out, but failed to score.
The Mets had one last chance to go ahead in the top of the ninth, but with two men on and two out, Wright struck out while Davis was waiting on deck.
Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero had the biggest hit, a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Diamondbacks pitchers struck out 15 Mets, including nine by starting and winning pitcher Ian Kennedy.
