Mets RHP Seth Lugo came into Friday night's contest in Chase Field without allowing a run in two starts this season.
Unfortunately, he couldn't move that streak to three as the Diamondbacks figured out Lugo, who has been stellar all season for the Mets.
It was Paul Goldschmidt in the top of the first that broke the 10-inning scoreless streak as a starter when he launched a solo homer to right center. But that wasn't the only offense the D-Backs strung together.
In the bottom of the third innings, Lugo surrendered three straight hits that resulted in a run to lead off the inning. Daniel Descalso would hit a sacrifice fly to Michael Conforto in center field to make it a 3-1 ball game later that inning.
And after a harmless fourth inning, more trouble came Lugo's way in the fifth. With two outs on the first two batters, David Peralta kept the inning alive with a single, and what resulted next ultimately ended Lugo's night. Descalso got the best of a pitch over the heart of the plate, and took it over the right field wall to break the game open in favor of the home team, 5-2.
The five runs allowed over five innings is the most Lugo has let up this season. Lugo also saw his 1.77 ERA, which was ranked fourth in the entire MLB for pitching tossing at least 40 innings this season, inflate to 2.49.
Lugo has been one of the Mets' most consistent pitchers this season, and the team is certainly hoping this outing was merely a fluke.
