Meet the Mets

The Mets came from behind on Tuesday night thanks to a mammoth two-run homer by Pete Alonso in the top of the 9th. Noah Syndergaard got the start and went 6 innings and allowed five runs (four earned). Brandon Nimmo’s RBI double in the 7th tied the game and Edwin Diaz was able to lock down the save in the bottom of the 9th.
