The Diamondbacks have announced who their starting pitcher is, however, and it will be Luke Weaver taking the mound for the Diamondbacks. Weaver has been struggling something awful over the past month. He hasn’t gone more than five innings since April 11th, and over that stretch hasn’t given up less than 3 runs, including giving up six runs to these same Marlins in his last start.
In this Mets vs Diamondbacks post-game news conference, second baseman Jeff McNeil insists his "confrontation" with shortstop Francisco Lindor in the dugout tunnel during Friday night's game against Arizona Diamondbacks was a debate about a rat, raccoon and maybe even, a possum.
The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner threw 68 pitches over five innings against Arizona, allowing one run, but he called for trainer Brian Chicklo when he felt tightness trying to get loose before the sixth. He left with Chicklo and went straight to the clubhouse. DeGrom struck out six and allowed one hit.
