Meet the Mets
After Walker Lockett was steady for the Mets into the 6th inning, the Mets bullpen showed us why it’s among the worst in all of baseball. Wilmer Font came in for relief for Lockett and allowed two of his runner’s to score, as well as allowing three runs of his own on three hits. At the plate, Jeff McNeil continued to do what he does best, having a four-hit game and Dominic Smith homered for the second straight day.
