Meet the Mets
The Twins crushed the Mets 14-8 on Tuesday night. The Mets allowed six home runs and Jacob deGrom struggled for the first time in a year as he went only four innings and allowed six runs. The Mets offense on the night was fueled by homers from Brandon Nimmo, Pete Alonso, and Michael Conforto as well as an RBI double off the bat of Amed Rosario. Noah Syndergaard will get the call tonight in the final game of the series.
