Meet the Mets
The Mets’ streak of successful starting pitching continued when Seth Lugo made his return to the mound. He pitched seven strong innings and allowed only one run. The offense had trouble bringing in runners, but they did just enough for the win and the Mets left Atlanta with three wins.
Seth Lugo made his return and picked up from where he left off last season.
Lugo was the third Met to make his return this weekend, and now perhaps the Mets can finally get rolling.
Yoenis Cespedes did not get the start on Sunday but the plan is for him to play back-to-back games against the Cubs. Easing the the slugger back is just part of how the teams hopes to keep him healthy.
Asdrubal Cabrera’s struggles in the field have been well documented, but he made a crucial play that ended up looming large when the game was over.
Now that the Mets are getting healthy, they have a chance to turn their season around.
With a big week of games coming up, the team needs to hope its health holds up.
Today’s game seems focused on hitting balls in the air, but Wilmer Flores’s recent success comes from hitting balls on the ground.
It comes as no surprise that Noah Syndergaard loves hot sauce, but during an interview about it, the fireballer’s answers took an interesting turn.
