Meet the Mets

Not only did New York find a way to break up the scoreless innings streak of Zack Greinke, but the revamped squad overcame a blown save by Jeurys Familia to defeat the Dodgers 3-2 in 10 innings. Juan Uribe played the hero by driving in the winning run to ensure that the Mets did not waste an outstanding Jacob deGrom start.
