Meet the Mets
The Mets still can’t seem to win a game started by Jacob deGrom. After resuming last night’s game, the Mets promptly surrendered a run and lost in 11 innings. The afternoon’s regularly scheduled game had much different results though. Jason Vargas pitched well and the Mets’ offense exploded. Todd Frazier hit a grand slam to open the scoring up, and the Mets continued pounding the Cubs from there. They ended up winning 10-3.
