The game swung back and forth in its first half. Robert Gsellman served up a first-inning grand slam to Marcell Ozuna. The Mets came right back and scored four runs in the top of the second, three of them coming home on a Travis d’Arnaud triple. Yoenis Cespedes hit a couple more monstrous home runs. The Mets led 7-4 at one point, and then Gsellman—with some help from Josh Edgin—gave up four more runs in the fifth.
It looked like the Mets tied the game in the seventh, but replay review turned a safe call at home plate into an out. The Mets actually tied it in the eighth on a pinch-hit double by Michael Conforto. Several Mets relievers pitched multiple innings.
And d’Arnaud hit a solo home run in the top of the sixteenth to give the Mets a 9-8 lead.
Whatever you do, don’t try to make sense of it all.
Full recap to follow.
