Meet the Mets
The Mets’ offense continues to fire on all cylinders. They put together 11 runs, with the help of some sloppy Marlins defense. And behind a solid performance from Robert Gsellman they cruised to a comfortable 11-3 victory. Despite all the injuries, the Mets have now won each of the last three series, and have the chance to make it a sweep over Miami Sunday afternoon.
