Result: The Mets lost to the Mariners, 5-2, in the first of a three-game series in Seattle.
Need to Know: Jonathon Niese made his first start since July 4 after a stint on the disabled list. Niese allowed four runs on 11 hits in six innings.

Travis d’Arnaud was the only other Met with a two-hit night and was robbed of a home run by Seattle’s Dustin Ackley in the sixth inning. Juan Lagares singled in the ninth and came around to score the Mets’ final run of the game.
