Meet The Mets

On the back of Chris Flexen’s best start to date and home runs from Michael Conforto, Yoenis Cespedes, and Travis d’Arnaud, the Mets hung on to beat the Texas Rangers 5-4. Flexen got his first major league hit and A.J. Ramos allowed a solo home run in his first closing opportunity for New York.

In today’s moment of “well yeah, probably,” Barry Bonds said that he thinks he could have hit his 800th career home run if he had played one more year.
