Mets skipper Callaway not focused on job security


Eduardo Escobar homered and became the first Diamondback to rack up 10 home runs this season.

Zack Godley (1-4) has allowed four or more earned runs in five of his eight starts this season and has not made it beyond four innings in each of the past four innings. That included Saturday, when the Giants reached four runs off Godley in the third inning.

San Francisco turned a 1-0 lead into 4-0 on Steven Duggar’s RBI triple, Buster Posey’s RBI single and Brandon Crawford’s sacrifice fly.

“We put some good swings on some balls when he did make a mistake,” Duggar said of Godley. “We just kind of kept the lineup going and we kind of fed off each other.”

After Godley walked Bumgarner with one out in the fourth inning and heard boos from the crowd, manager Torey Lovullo removed him.

Godley lasted 3-1/3 innings, but allowed four runs and six hits with three strikeouts.

For his part, Godley was encouraged with his outing.

“I felt awesome. The biggest thing was being able to put people away,” he said. “I felt like I was back to where I needed to be.”

Escobar’s home run led off the fourth inning and the Diamondbacks made it 4-2 when Jones singled in Blake Swihart from second base.

The Diamondbacks cut the lead to 6-4 and had runners at the corners in the seventh, but could not add more in the inning.

Also on Saturday, it was:

‧ Astros 7, Red Sox 3

‧ Nationals 5, Cubs 2

‧ Rays 2, Yankees 1

‧ Angels 6, Royals 3

‧ Phillies 2, Rockies 1
