New York Mets manager Terry Collins was at a loss for words following his team's fifth straight loss Monday night, a 7-3 defeat to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the desert.

Jake Lamb hit a third-inning home run off Matt Harvey to give the Diamondbacks their first lead, the 11th home run off Harvey already this season.

[FiveThirtyEight] The Best Teams Of Baseball's 2015 Season Are Bums In 2017 - Since the League Championship Series format began in 1969, it's tough to find a "Final Four" of baseball that's fallen on harder times two years later than 2015's quartet of the Kansas City Royals, New York Mets, Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays.

Granderson, who entered hitting.148, had two RBIs for the Mets (16-22), who have gone 16 straight games without a starting pitcher recording an out in the seventh inning.

For a little backstory, a Page Six report suggested Harvey missed a Mets home game on May 6 because he was distraught over seeing model Adriana Lima, whom Harvey previously dated, together with New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman at the Met Gala in NY.

After Josh Edgin relieved Hansel Robles for the Mets, Daniel Descalso homered to cap off the six-run inning for Arizona.

NY went 0-6 in Milwaukee and Arizona, the Mets' longest winless trip since 1999, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

RAYS 7, INDIANS 4: Corey Dickerson hit a three-run homer - his third homer in two days - and Alex Cobb controlled Cleveland over seven inning as Tampa Bay busted out the bats in a 7-4 win over the Indians on Wednesday to complete the Rays' most successful trip since last May.

"It's very easy to unravel right now and I will not let that happen here", Collins said.

"We're going to get better", Jose Reyes said. "It may be, but it may not either, so we have got to get these guys that are here going".

"We started to get a little confidence as a group", said Mathis, never known for his hitting.

"It's awesome, man", said Herrmann. Brandon Drury owns a 12-game hitting streak at home that has seen him bat.426 (20-for-47), and he has reached base safely in 34 of his past 35 games at Chase Field.

As a catcher, Herrmann said, "Honestly, playing extra innings suck".

"Seeing C.O. (Owings) stop right there and knowing there was two outs, you have to take at least some bit of a chance to try to get to home", Goldschmidt said.

Herrmman's teammates doused him with a Gatoraid container of ice and water at the plate.

"Wherever they put me I'm going to keep on working", he said. Matt Reynolds then walked and scored on Reyes' two-out double. Robles, who took his first loss of the season, gave up four runs in an inning in his previous outing, Saturday at Milwaukee. Godley went six and two thirds innings, allowing one run on one hit, striking out seven and walked five. With a runner on and one out in the third inning, he hit a 2-0 fastball, clocked at 97-mph, high into the left-field seats to give the D-backs a 3-2 lead.

"Obviously, if I could go back and change a couple pitches I would", he said. "You're not supposed to feel good". "The critical part is getting Matt Harvey going, make no mistake about it", Collins said. He finished allowing four runs on nine hits, including a pair of home runs by Michael Conforto and Juan Lagares.

While battling his command at times, Harvey also had two fantastic sequences against Paul Goldschmidt when he struck out the first baseman, both times swinging. He was the Diamondbacks' bullpen and catching coach from 1998 to 2016 before joining the Mets this season.
