Gonzalez's first came in the second inning on a hanging curveball. His second came in the fourth on a cutter left up.

Mets starter D.J. Carrasco hit his 85-pitch limit after 3.2 innings. He was gassed by the end of it, walking Derek Lowe and leaving most of his pitches up. He gave up three runs on four hits, walking three and striking out two. Ryota Igarashi came on to relieve Carrasco, recording the final out in the fourth.
