Meet the Mets
In a game where Noah Syndergaard had his best stuff of the year, the Mets almost lost it. Syndergaard pitched 7.1 innings allowing just one unearned run. Edwin Diaz came on in the 9th inning trying to protect a 2-1 lead and blew the save. The Mets answered back in the 11th inning with home runs from Jeff McNeil and Michael Conforto to secure the win.
Ervin Santana was scratched from his start with Triple-A Syracuse as a contingency plan if the Mets were to deal a starter.
