Anthony Recker launched a solo homer in an extra-inning loss to the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
His solo blast off Heath Bell tied the game in the bottom of the 13th inning. The Diamondbacks took the lead in the next half-inning, but the Mets battled back in the bottom of the 14th inning, this time on a solo homer from Kirk Nieuwenhuis. The Diamondbacks eventually went on to win the game in the 15th inning. It was a wild one. Recker has shown some pop in a small sample this season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him start to get some more playing time over the struggling John Buck.
