Arozarena hits HR tying Homers at 9th, DeLuca had a 2-run Triple at 10th, Rays beat Mets 7-6

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.: Randy Arozarena hit a tying run off Edwin Díaz with two outs in the ninth inning, Jonny DeLuca lined a two-run run in the 10th and the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the New York Mets 7-6 on Sunday for a three game sweep.

Automatic runner José Caballero stole third when Jake Diekman (1-1) walked Ben Rortvedt leading off from the 10th. Both runners scored when DeLuca’s line drive got past a diving Harrison Bader in center field.

New York took a 6–5 lead in the top of the 10th inning when Bader scored on an error by first baseman Yandy Díaz, who was unable to make a clean catch on a low throw after Brandon Nimmo’s grounder was deflected by reliever Erasmo Ramírez (1–0) .

A collapsing Arozarena pulled the Rays even at 5 with a two-out solo homer to left field on a full pitch from Edwin Díaz, who had converted 26 consecutive save opportunities through 2022 — the longest active streak in the majors.

Arozarena, a 2023 All-Star, is hitting .143. He struck out three times in his first four at-bats.

New York has lost eight straight games at Tropicana Field.

Francisco Lindor hit a two-run homer in the first inning for the Mets and leads the Majors with six multi-RBI games since April 19.

Rays starter Ryan Pepiot left the third inning with a bruised left leg after being hit by Starling Marte’s 107.5 mph line drive. The right-hander, who was 2-0 with a 1.00 ERA in his previous three starts, gave up three runs and three hits in two-plus innings. The team said the X-rays were negative.

Mets starter Luis Severino allowed four runs, four hits and a career-high six walks in five innings. He struck out six in a 98-pitch outing. The righthander took a no-hitter in the eighth in his previous start last Monday against the Cubs.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Mets: RHP Kodai Senga (right shoulder injury) threw 32 pitches over two simulated innings on Saturday in his second session of live batting practice. New York manager Carlos Mendoza said reports about Senga were good. “He said he felt great,” Mendoza said. “Everything is going in the right direction.” Senga could be back in late May or early June.

Rays: RHP Taj Bradley (right pec) will likely rejoin the rotation this week.

NEXT ONE

Mets: LHP Sean Manaea (1-1, 3.07 ERA) faces Cardinals RHP Kyle Gibson (2-2, 3.79) on Monday night in St. Louis.

Rays: LHP Tyler Alexander (1-1. 5.02 ERA) will start or follow an opener against the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. The AL-worst White Sox won a three-game series against Tampa Bay last month.
