Meet the Mets

The Mets' offense finally came to life, cranking out 14 hits and four home runs in a 6-5 victory over the Indians in Cleveland. Bartolo Colon picked up his first win of the season, but it all seemed in jeopardy as Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia struggled to close out the game, giving up three runs in the ninth before mercifully ending things. The Mets and the Tribe duel again today as Matt Harvey takes the mound for his first career start against Cleveland.

Jacob deGrom will not make his next start. Logan Verrett, who filled in for deGrom against the Marlins and pitched well, will reportedly make the start instead.

The Mets issued a public apology for having sold Mike Piazza's 9/11 game jersey after three minority owners of the team bought back the jersey for a reported $365,000 this week and plan to have it spend time on display at Citi Field, the 9/11 Memorial Museum, and the Baseball Hall of Fame.
