The Arizona Diamondbacks have struggled mightily lately. Despite coming into Monday 10 games above .500, the D-backs have the worst record in baseball (17-29) since June 27.
But let's keep things in perspective: At least the D-backs aren't the New York Mets, who own the seventh-worst overall record in all of baseball.
How bad are things for the Mets? Well, on Monday, Mets pitcher Robert Gsellman had what should have been an easy throw to first base that would have ended the top of the third inning vs. the visiting D-backs. Instead, Gsellman did this.

Gsellman's throw reminded some Mets fans of another infamous throw at Citi Field, by 50 Cent in 2014.
As it turns out, the Mets were just what the D-backs needed to put an end their three-game losing streak, as A.J. Pollock's 10th-inning home run lifted Arizona to a 3-2 victory in the Big Apple on Monday. The D-backs have won 9 of their last 10 games vs. the Mets.
