PHOENIX — As Arizona added another contributor Jack Mewhort Jersey , the New York Mets continued to run into road blocks.

Diamondbacks outfielder Jon Jay had hit leadoff in all five of his starts since joining the team in Colorado last week, and he has been good. Jay had three hits, including the game-clinching homer in a 13-8 victory over Pittsburgh on Tuesday, and he added a two-out, two-run single in the ninth inning of a 5-4 loss to the Pirates in the final game of the series Wednesday.

The Mets, meanwhile, received more bad news Wednesday when right-hander Noah Syndergaard was told he will need more time to recover from a right index finger injury that landed him on the disabled list.

Seth Lugo will take Syndergaard’s spot in the rotation for a four-game series in Arizona that opens Thursday, when Diamondbacks right-hander Matt Koch will oppose Mets left-hander Steven Matz.

The Mets swept a three-game series from Arizona at Citi Field from May 18-20, but they have not won a series since, losing six and splitting one. New York has lost 10 of its last 11 games and 17 of 21.

Including a 4-1 victory over Atlanta on May 30, the Mets have scored 19 runs in 12 games and have been shut out three times, including a 2-0 loss to Atlanta on Wednesday. They have scored one run four more times.

The lack of offense has caused some shuffling. New York designated first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for assignment last weekend and designated catcher Jose Loboton for assignment on Tuesday. Veteran Jose Reyes is hitting .147.

“We expected to rely on our pitching and build a lineup of position players that would be competitive on the offensive side and defensively as well,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said in a conference call.

“That hasn’t happened. When you’re scoring runs at the anemic rate that we have, something hasn’t worked.”

Jay has helped fix the Diamondbacks’ injury-depleted outfield group. His acquisition may have seemed an indication that injured outfielders A.J. Pollock (fractured thumb) and Steven Souza Jr. (strained pectoral) were on a slower path to recovery Phillip Gaines Jersey , but the D-backs say both are on schedule.

The chance to obtain veteran Jay was simply too good to pass up, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.

“He knows what it takes to go out every single day and play the game at the level we expect guys to play at,” Lovullo said. “Tremendous teammate. Understands his role. We felt like at this time with some outfielders that were out, we needed to create some sort of a bridge to when these outfielders return.”

Jay has made all his starts in right field, but he also gives the Diamondbacks an option in center field, where Jarrod Dyson and Chris Owings have played since Pollock suffered his injury May 14.

“I’ve always like the way they grinded out at-bats,” Jay said of what he had noticed in Arizona. “Regardless of the results, it was always a tough out in the lineup one through nine. The way they run the bases. Defense has really stood out for a while.

“It’s a team I have followed because I had some friends and stuff like. Watching last year, with the run they had. I’m excited to be here and be another part of that puzzle.”

Jay has 67 games of playoff experience with St. Louis and the Cubs, and was in the postseason 2011-15 with the Cardinals and last season with the Cubs. Jay and Daniel Descalso were teammates in St. Louis from 2010-14.

“He’s a guy that possesses good on-base skills,” Descalso said. “He will go up there and give you good at-bats, take walks, hit by pitches. A guy who has been on a lot of winning teams, has played in a lot of playoff games Lerentee McCray Jersey , so just brings another level of veteran leadership to this clubhouse.

“The more guys that you put on this team that have been on winning teams and have been in big spots, the better off we are going to be.”

Koch is 4-3 with a 4.20 ERA in 11 appearances, 10 starts, since replacing Taijuan Walker in the starting rotation. Koch has five quality starts, and he had a career-high six strikeouts in seven scoreless innings of a 6-1 victory over Miami on June 3. He gave up eight hits and seven runs (five earned) in his most recent start, a no-decision in the Diamondbacks’ 12-7 victory at Colorado on Saturday.

A third-round pick by the Mets in 2012, Koch is 3-2 with a 4.32 ERA in seven home starts. He made one relief appearance against the Mets in 2017, giving up two hits and a walk without retiring a batter.

Matz, 2-4 with a 3.53 ERA in 12 starts, faced the Diamondbacks on May 19. He gave up four runs in four innings but did not receive a decision when the Mets rallied for a 5-4 walk-off victory in the last of the ninth inning.

Matz has no-decisions in two career starts against Arizona, although he has given six runs and four homers in 10 innings. He has never pitched at Chase Field.

New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been trying to keep his focus on football since the body of a 25-year-old friend was found in his New Jersey home last month.

Jenkins' brother, William H. Jenkins, was charged with aggravated manslaughter days after the body of Roosevelt Rene was found in the football player's Fair Lawn home on June 26.

Addressing the media on Sunday for the first time about the death, Jenkins said he has not spoken to his brother since he was arrested by New York State Police late last month. He reiterated that he was not in the house when Rene died.

"My main focus has always been football Michael Palardy Jersey ," Jenkins said. "Things that happened, I can't control, because I wasn't there. Just coming back, being with my team, just being excited to be there. ... I haven't talked to (his brother), but I will, see where his head was at, and as far as that, I'll leave it at that. It's shocking. But, you know, I've still got to come and play football."

Janoris Jenkins, who is entering his third season with the Giants after signing a five-year, $62.5 million contract as a free agent, refused to say much else about the incident.

"It is difficult but at the end of the day you have to be a pro Leonard Fournette Jersey ," Janoris said. "Things are going to happen in life. Some things you can't control and this is one of those situations."

Jenkins has been focused since the Giants starting practicing four days ago. He had an interception on the first day.

"It doesn't make me feel like I am ready," Jenkins said. "It makes me feel like I am taking steps to being ready. Like, I said continuing to work, getting better and being there for my team."

Like the Giants (3-13), Jenkins struggled last season. He was suspended for a game for violating team rules in late October and eventually had his season end in late November by an ankle injury that required surgery.

Jenkins said he spent the offseason strengthening his ankle and he is excited about the 3-4 defense that new coordinator James Bettcher has installed.

"It's aggressive, lets players play a little and not be robots," Jenkins said, adding he also has been impressed with the new business-like attitude that fellow cornerback Eli Apple has displayed so far.

Jenkins also is enjoying the opportunity to play against star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in practice every day.

"It just feels good because you know you can compete in practice against a top receiver," said Jenkins, who has 16 interceptions in six seasons. "Me and him going at it every day; he is going to win, I am going to win. He might win the whole day, I might win. But it is only getting us better."
