Meet the Mets
The Mets finally won on a Sunday behind Curtis Granderson’s hot bat. He led off the game with a double, and by the time the game was over he was a triple shy of the cycle. Michael Conforto put the Mets on the board first with a two-run home run and Chris Flexen did just enough to make it stand up. Some Philadelphia mistakes certainly helped the Mets to victory, but a Sunday win was a nice change of pace before they head to the Bronx to take on the Yankees.
After a slow start, Curtis Granderson has become a consistent presence when he is in the lineup.
Conforto and the rest of the team will now prepare to face off against their rivals from the Bronx in the Subway Series.
T.J. Rivera grew up rooting for the Yankees, but his loyalties have certainly changed.
With all of the hype surrounding the series with the Yankees, Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith will be put to the test in their young careers.
Despite having opposite seasons, players on both sides still look forward to this series.
Hansel Robles has not had a good year but has been better lately, so which version is the real Robles?
The Mets have another young, promising first baseman in their system, and he has developed a powerful swing in his time in St. Lucie.
