Meet the Mets

In the first game of a crucial 9 game stretch at home, the Mets topped the Cleveland Indians 9-2. Steven Matz pitched very well, going 6.1 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) while the bullpen did the rest of the work. Michael Conforto gave the Mets the lead in the bottom of the sixth inning with a two-run homer before the Mets’ offense broke the game open in the 7th.
