Meet the Mets
The Mets closed out their series against the Marlins with a win. Noah Syndergaard was solid on the mound and pitched seven innings and struck out seven. Jose Reyes and Michael Conforto helped power the offense with a home run each. Seth Lugo nailed down the save and the Mets took the series.
Michael Conforto’s home run came off lefty Wei-Yin Chen. Being able to face lefties this year has helped the young outfielder become more comfortable when it comes to facing southpaws on the mound.
After the game against the Marlins, the Mets optioned Jacob Rhame to Triple-A and recalled Tim Peterson.
