A lot happened within the New York Mets' universe in the 20-plus hours between the end of Monday's game and the start of Tuesday's. "Go home with some momentum and hopefully keep it going". They're also 10-2 in their last 12 games when their opponent scores two runs or less in its previous game and have won four of five games at home as well. They've scored in the first inning in eight of their last nine games, totaling 17 runs.
All those runs were important as the Mets rallied in the bottom of the inning against Derek Law but, the tying run was stranded on second base. He could be activated Wednesday, manager Bruce Bochy said. "But I'll mix it up with the closing".
Jose Reyes (single) and Rene Rivera (double) added RBI hits later in the first for the Mets.
As DiComo points out, the Mets' three best players are all missing time right now due to injury. With a chance to start a game-ending double play, Flores bobbled the ball and rushed a high throw to second base.
"I feel great", Familia told reporters after the game.
Except Terry Collins' choice to use a bunch of relievers with a five-run lead the day before is is own mistake, and the notion that he was doing so for fear of what might happen yesterday is both (a) a stretch; and (b) was directly contradicted by what Collins himself said. After a walk to Posey, Arroyo cleared the bases with a line drive to left-center. "I just didn't have it today".
"I thought it was going to go out", said Posey, who drew a walk immediately before Arroyo's hit. "That was not the issue".
Bryan Morris (1-0) tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings to pick up the win.

The 48-year-old actress regrets the omnipresence and negative impact that this may have on her life, even if she tries to preserve it to the maximum.
"Those types of wins can turn things around". The only loss came Sunday, when Adam Wilk was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Harvey and gave up six runs (five earned) over 3 2/3 innings in a 7-0 loss to the Marlins.
Posey homered in every game of the series, connecting in three straight for the third time in his career and first since June 2013.
Baltimore rallied from a late three-run deficit to complete a two-game sweep of its neighbor.
"Really put together some good at-bats all the way through", Posey said. "Then I was thinking 'Maybe he knocked it over the wall.' And then I saw the replay and felt better". Moronta takes the roster spot of RHP Mark Melancon (right pronator strain), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list just before first pitch Tuesday. Slumping 1B Brandon Belt was rested against the lefty. He had a pinch-hit single in the eighth.
Mets: SS Asdrubal Cabrera (left thumb) is expected back in the starting lineup Wednesday.
"It's pretty special that these guys are all there for him", Collins said. He hopes to get Duda back this weekend in Milwaukee.
Now they'll be without a pitcher who had a club-record 51 saves last season.
The Mets' pitching staff already had been hit hard by injury (to fireballing starter Noah Syndergaard) and controversy (Harvey's three-game suspension this week for violating team rules).
