Meet the Mets
The Mets dominated the Braves 10-2 on Tuesday night behind a stellar performance from Jacob deGrom and the trio of Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Michael Conforto. deGrom pitched into the 9th inning, striking out ten batters while Alonso, McNeil, and Conforto combined for nine hits, six RBIs, and 3 home runs. deGrom’s excellent performance helped move him into seventh place on the Mets all-time strikeout list.
