Meet the Mets

In a match up between two of the worst teams of baseball, the Mets fell to the Orioles 6-3. Jason Vargas started for the Mets and recorded an out in the sixth inning for the first time this season. Vargas gave up two runs over six innings before Bobby Wahl and Paul Sewald struggled out of the bullpen for New York. At the plate, Kevin Plawecki, Amed Rosario, and Todd Frazier each had RBI singles for the Mets.
