MLB: New York Mets at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

Mercifully there are only a handful of Sundays left in the 2017 season. The Mets jumped out to a 4-1 lead against the Astros, but Chris Flexen could not hold it against playoff-bound Houston. Led by Norichika Aoki, the Mets did attempt a comeback, but the offense left too many men on the bases to salvage a win.
