Meet the Mets
Although the calendar flipped to June on Sunday, the script remained the same between the Mets and Phillies. Another game was played into extra innings, and the Mets triumphed 4-3 on the strength of a Lucas Duda two-run homer in the top of the 11th. Jon Niese's eight strong innings have been lost to the sands of time.
Juan Lagares was forced out of the game in the 10th inning with an oblique injury. The center fielder was sent back to New York on Sunday night, where he has an MRI exam scheduled for this morning.
Matt den Dekker is reportedly set to join the big club again should the Mets move Lagares to the disabled list, which is expected to happen prior to Monday's series finale. den Dekker had been demoted on Sunday to make room for lefty swingman Dana Eveland.
On a lighter note, Marlon Byrd somehow broke his bat without making contact with the ball.
Paul Lo Duca is now a horse racing analyst.
