Mets Morning News: Ruben Tejada - shortstop of the future (or something like that)!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Your Tuesday morning, post walk-off dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

Well that was certainly a wild game last night! The Mets put two runs on the board early after a Travis d'Arnaud RBI double  and a David Wright home run, but the bullpen blew the lead by giving up three runs in the eighth. Curtis Granderson tied it up in the bottom of that frame, and we went to extras where a Ruben Tejada walkoff single propelled the Mets to victory.
