MLB: Baltimore Orioles at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

The Mets dropped their fifth game in a row last night as they fell to the Orioles 2-1. The Mets managed only three hits against Alex Cobb and company while Jason Vargas settled down after a first inning which looked like he was bound for another rough outing. The Mets will play the second and final game of the series this afternoon as Zack Wheeler takes the mound.
