Meet the Mets
Clutch hits by Eric Campbell and Lucas Duda gave the Mets a 4-2 lead over San Francisco, but Matt Harvey gave up five runs in the sixth to doom New York to an 8-5 defeat.
Harvey isn't using Tommy John surgery as an excuse for his recent struggles.
Before the game, the Mets activated Travis d'Arnaud off the disabled list and optioned Danny Muno to Triple-A. The move leaves New York with three catchers and no backup infielders, but Dilson Herrera is going to be back soon.
The Mets are hoping to acquire veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez from Milwaukee, but a trade might require more than just Dillon Gee or Jon Niese.
Although the Mets used their top pick on an outfielder named Desmond Lindsay, the team's overall focus was on drafting pitchers.
Former Met Rusty Staub hosted 800 widows and children of New York heroes at Citi Field last night.
