Meet the Mets

The Blue Jays defeated the Mets on Tuesday night 8-6. After jumping out to a 5-0 lead, the Mets bullpen was not able to secure the win for Zack Wheeler as they allowed six runs in just 1.1 innings work. The Mets’ offense was fueled by the long ball as Wilmer Flores, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Devin Mesoraco all hit home runs.
