Meet the Mets
For six innings, it looked like the Mets were heading for a win in Los Angeles. Noah Syndergaard pitched six innings of three-run ball, Pete Alonso contributed two two-run home runs, and Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith each added their own solo home runs to give the team a five-run cushion heading into the bottom of the seventh. However, the bullpen imploded, culminating in an Edwin Diaz meltdown. After Robert Gsellman and Jeurys Familia allowed a run in the seventh and eighth, respectively, the Mets’ closer gave up four runs in the ninth as the Mets fell to the Dodgers.
Todd Frazier has been heating up recently and he is happy he is finally contributing to the team.
