Meet the Mets

After sweeping the Cubs, the Mets continued their offensive resurgence in a come-from-behind win against the Marlins and now find themselves on a five-game winning streak. After an atrocious start by Matt Harvey, who gave up six runs and 11 hits before being chased in the fourth inning, the Mets’ bullpen shut out the Marlins for the rest of the night as the Mets bats came to life.

Yoenis Cespedes continued his hot streak at the plate and was joined by the rest of the team. Every Mets starter got a hit, with the exception of Neil Walker, who drew three walks. The Mets and Marlins continue their series today at 7:10 p.m.

First, the big news: Jose Reyes will be activated and join the Mets today.

Mets top draft pick Justin Dunn made his debut last night for the Brooklyn Cyclones, and pitched two scoreless innings.

Terry Collins wouldn’t promise an All-Star spot for Jeurys Familia but said the Mets’ closer had made a good case for himself.

Doc Gooden and Darryl Strawberry spoke to the New York Times about their struggles to get clean and sober, as detailed in their new 30 for 30 documentary “Doc & Darryl,” which is directed by self-avowed Mets fan Judd Apatow.

Robert De Niro was not happy about his mention in Lenny Dykstra’s new book.

Around the NL East

The Phillies and Braves clashed, and the Phillies came out on top.

The Nationals wasted a strong start from Max Scherzer and lost 1-0 to the Brewers.

Perhaps the Marlins lost to the Mets because they leave a lot of runners on base.
