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.

The Mets and the Tribe duel again today as Matt Harvey takes the mound for his first career start against Cleveland.
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.
