Meet the Mets

The Mets were swept by the Rockies on Sunday to finish up an 11-game road trip. Jacob deGrom battled once again without his best stuff and left in the seventh with the lead. Jim Henderson came on in relief and gave up a pinch-hit home run to Ryan Raburn to give the Rockies the lead. The Mets tried to stage a comeback but were thwarted once again by an umpire's decision. On a groun dball by Lucas Duda, Juan Lagares was called out for running outside of the baseline, resulting in a double play. The Mets have the day off Monday and then play the Nationals at home on Tuesday for their first meeting of the season.
