Meet the Mets
The Mets scored a record-setting 12 runs in the third inning of last night's game against the Giants, propelling them to a 13-1 victory. The Mets extended their winning streak to seven games, and Steven Matz picked up his third straight win.
The night was also a good one for Yoenis Cespedes who picked up his own Mets record with six RBIs in one inning.
