Lucas Duda struck out with the bases loaded in the first inning Saturday. In total, he left seven men on base and went hitless in four at-bats.
“Zack Wheeler pitched a heck of a game, and I feel like I let him down today,” Duda said after the loss. “I’ve got to drive those runs in, no doubt. I’ll take the blame for this one today.”
Duda is batting .238 with a .315 PBP, 2 HR and 11 RBI since the Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pirates on April 19.
