Meet the Mets
The Mets took the rubber game in Cleveland, defeating the Indians 6-0. Steven Matz had a nice bounce-back performance Sunday afternoon. He pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits and striking out a career-high nine batters. Michael Conforto continued to thrive batting third in the lineup. He collected another two hits and drove in two runs. He is now five out of twelve since moving up in the lineup.
A Mets win is nice but the best news came after the game when Terry Collins said the deGroms might be able to take their son home soon.
