Meet the Mets
Always nice when your leadoff hitter drives in three runs in the first inning. The Mets offense knocked Padres starter Jhoulys Chacin out early, eventually cruising to a 9-3. They’ve now won three of four at home to try and bounce back from the brutal road trip.
It was another glimmering night for Michael Conforto, who’s starting to get some well-deserved All-Star buzz.
The game could also have been a sign of a Lucas Duda breakout.
Despite the easy win, Matt Harvey once again looked shaky on the mound.
The hope Robert Gsellman can turn things around as they give him back the ball for Wednesday night’s game.
It’s good some of the Mets injured starters seem near a return; Jay Bruce left Tuesday’s game with back tightness.
