Meet the Mets
In the first game of their doubleheader, the Mets lost to the Yankees 12-5 as Zack Wheeler and the rest of the pitching staff was hit hard. The highlight of game one was Jeff McNeil hitting a three-run homer with the Mets bats staying quiet otherwise. In the nightcap, the Mets bats came alive and Jason Vargas was steady as the Mets won 10-4 to earn the split.
