Meet the Mets
Michael Cuddyer reached base four times and drove in the winning run with two outs in the seventh inning to lead New York to a 5-4 win over Boston.
Jeurys Familia closed out the victory in the ninth inning with much help from his new splitter.
Boston slugger David Ortiz walked away very impressed with New York's pitching staff.
Before the game, the Mets moved Triple-A shortstop Wilfredo Tovar to the 60-day disabled list in order to make room for new relief pitcher Addison Reed. That only opened up a spot on the 40-man roster, though. To get Reed onto the big league club, New York optioned Logan Verrett to the minors.
We already know some of the players who will join the Mets on September 1.
Terry Collins says that Noah Syndergaard is not heading to the bullpen anytime soon.
The Daily News spoke to Bobby Valentine, who says he roots for the Mets and is excited about the team's chances in 2015.
