Meet the Mets
Noah Syndergaard had a solid outing in the Mets’ win over the Giants. He was much improved after his last start but still was not completely dominant. He did enough to get the win, and home runs by Dominic Smith, Jose Bautista, and Todd Frazier helped carry the offense. Jeff McNeil continues to rake and picked up another two hits as well. The Mets will now attempt to take the series against Madison Bumgarner.
Jeff McNeil had another good day at the plate and he is reminding some scouts of Daniel Murphy.
The Mets could use these final weeks of the season to help prepare for next year but it could also be all for naught since nobody knows what the team is going to look like going forward.
It is a battle of aces on the mound with Jacob deGrom and Madison Bumgarner facing off in the series finale. Bumgarner already went to bat for deGrom and said he should be this year’s Cy Young winner.
The pitching seems to have settled down some but Mickey Callaway would prefer to have some solid defense played behind them.
If you are already looking ahead to next season you are in luck because the 2019 season schedule was released.

This Date in Mets History
On this date in 2009, the Mets accomplished two very rare feats in a loss to the Phillies. The first was an inside-the-park home run hit by Angel Pagan. Then in the ninth Jeff Francoeur hit into an unassisted triple play to end the game and any hope of a comeback.
