First baseman Ike Davis tried to single handily keep the Mets afloat on Saturday night, but his three solo home runs weren't enough, as New York fell to the Arizona Diamondbacks by a final score of 6-3.
The Diamondbacks scored three runs in the first two innings off of starting pitcher Chris Young, who only went four innings, allowing seven hits and six earned runs.
Davis hit his first bomb of the night in the second inning and made the score 3-2 in the top of the fourth with another homer. But the Diamondbacks put the game out of reach half an inning later thanks to a two run blast by catcher Miguel Montero and an RBI single by center fielder Gerardo Parra. Davis hit his third and final homer of the night in the sixth inning and later singled to finish the game 4-4. The rest of the Mets lineup finished with five hits.
The loss drops New York to 48-53, while Arizona improves to 51-50. The fourth and final game of the series will be played Sunday at 4:10 p.m. Eastern Time.
