Meet the Mets

The Mets grinded out a walkoff win yesterday against the Brewers, clinching a much-needed series win in the process. Jacob deGrom wasn't at his best, but big hits from Yoenis Cespedes and David Wright helped seal the deal.

Choose your recap: Amazin' Avenue short and long, MLB.com, ESPN, NY Post, Daily NewsTimesNJ.com, Newsday, Bergen County Record, Faith and Fear in Flushing.

He currently has his feet held to the fire, but Mike Lupica says Mets fans shouldn't give up on Matt Harvey just yet.

Meanwhile, another cog in the Mets' super rotation seems a little off.

Wilmer Flores could be coming back soon. He's set to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday.

The Post's Phil Mushnick took note of the awkward interaction between the SNY crew earlier this week as they discussed Bartolo Colon's tabloid rumors.

In case you missed it, former Met Dillon Gee threw a very interesting pitch in Friday night's Royals-White Sox game.

Enjoy how Darryl Strawberry signs his name in a text message.

Around the NL East

The Braves have won two consecutive games! And it appears Williams Perez eats the Phillies' lunch.

Needless to say, the Phillies aren't as excited about Atlanta's winning streak.

The Marlins beat the Nationals courtesy big games from Ichiro and Justin Bour.

Watching Bryce Harper play against the Mets might make you sick to your stomach, but you can still enjoy this.

Around the Majors

Red Sox starter Joe Kelly tossed one of the best games of his career, carrying a no-hitter into the 7th inning against the Indians.

Sox fans also continue to marvel at Jackie Bradley Jr.'s breakout season. He's now 30 well-timed hits away from baseball's most elusive steak.

Cubs fans are probably breathing a sigh of relief. What appeared be a serious injury to Jason Heyward will only keep him out a few days.

Take some time to enjoy a 473-foot home run from Franklin Gutierrez, the second-longest blast so far this season.

The Yankees won yesterday in Oakland, but the game still might have been a bit of a stinker.

The Rays' struggling offense suffered another setback, as Kevin Kiermaier suffered hand fractures trying to make a catch.

Yesterday at Amazin' Avenue

Lucas Duda will miss the next few days with back stiffness, and Kevin Palermo says it's a chance for Eric Campbell to keep getting on base.

Meanwhile, Kevin also reported on the Mets' decision to keep Matt Harvey in the rotation, despite speculation that he might need a mental break.

Steve Sypa delivered your Daily Prospect Report, including a big night from T.J. Rivera.

Today in Mets History

On this date in 1998, there was extra buzz in the air because Mike Piazza was about to arrive in Queens. But journeyman pitcher Dennis Cook stole the show. He came on in the 8th inning trying to preserve a lead against the Brewers. And after allowing two baserunners, he picked them both off on back-to-back plays.
