Meet the Mets
The minor league Mets, led by Jeff McNeil, John Mora, and Phillip Evans, tried to mount a late rally, but it wasn't enough to erase the 8-0 hole that the starters fell into. Matt Harvey took just three innings to allow six of those runs in the 8-5 defeat versus the Astros. It was not an encouraging outing, and afterwards the right-hander said his mechanics were "out of whack."
During the game, Yoenis Cespedes mistook a ball in play as being stuck under the outfield fence. That snafu led to an inside-the-park home run for Houston slugger A.J. Reed. Terry Collins didn't sound too concerned about it after the game.
