Meet the Mets
Jacob deGrom enjoyed a successful return to the mound the Sunday. With a pitch limit of 85, he went five-and-two-thirds innings, struck out three, and gave up one earned run. Aaron Blair, who was making his major league debut for the Braves, mostly held the raging hot Mets' offense in check. Michael Conforto provided most of the offense with a sacrifice fly in the first and a RBI double in the sixth, which gave the Mets a lead they would never relinquish. The Mets went 7-2 on the road trip and return home to face the Reds tonight.
Yoenis Cespedes is feeling better and hoping to return to the lineup soon.
Neil Walker in fitting in nicely both on and off the field.
