Meet the Mets
The Mets’ third game of the season wasn’t as successful as the first two as they lost to the Nationals 6-5, but a series win to start the year is nothing to sneeze at. In his debut with the Nationals, Patrick Corbin limited the Mets to two runs while Zack Wheeler gave up four in his five innings of work. Pete Alonso had another great day at the plate, smacking two hits, driving in one, and drawing a walk. An eighth inning comeback gave fans something to cheer for, but a Trea Turner walkoff home run put that to a quick end.
