Meet the Mets
All good things must come to an end, as they say. The Mets were handed their second loss of the season last night, as they fell to the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1. Matt Harvey was not particularly sharp, but it hardly mattered, as the bats fell silent against Chase Anderson, Jeremy Jeffress, and Josh Hader, managing just three hits. However, Paul Sewald was very impressive in his three innings of relief.

This Date in Mets History
Of course, on this date, everyone in baseball pays tribute to Jackie Robinson. Exactly 50 years after Robinson played in his first game as a Dodger, on April 15, 1997, the Mets hosted Major League Baseball’s first Jackie Robinson Day at Shea Stadium. It has been a time honored tradition ever since.
