Meet the Mets

No offense and shaky defense led to another lost Sunday afternoon for the Mets against the Marlins. The Marlins’ defense played a vital role in Saturday’s win, and on Sunday it was the Mets’ turn to give the game away. Only Cespedes’s error showed up in the box score, but crucial misplays by Travis d’Arnaud and Amed Rosario set the stage for Giancarlo Stanton to take Jacob deGrom deep. The offense could not get going against starter Adam Conley. They did attempt a comeback against the bullpen but fell just short.

This Date in Mets History

On August 21, 1977 Tom Seaver again wowed the crowed at Shea Stadium but this time he did it in a Reds uniform. He held his former team to just one run in nine innings of work in his return to New York.

In 2001, Mike Piazza took former teammate Mike Hampton deep for his 300th home run as a catcher.
