Meet the Mets
The Mets pounced on Dodgers starter Rich Hill early, tagging him for three solo home runs—from Michael Conforto, Wilmer Flores, and Curtis Granderson—in the bottom of the first. But they wouldn’t score again until adding a Rene Rivera solo shot in the ninth, leaving the door open for a Los Angeles comeback that saw the road team score seven over the final four frames for a 7-4 victory.
Jay Bruce is all too familiar with the trading block. In an interview, he detailed what it’s like to play while your team is trying to flip you for assets.
Speaking of veteran outfielders on the trading block, Terry Collins offered a glowing review of Granderson’s professionalism.
David Peterson, the southpaw the Mets selected in the first round of the 2017 draft, visited Citi Field and met several members of the major league club.
Thanks mostly to Tim Tebow, the St. Lucie Mets set a club record for attendance.
