MLB: AUG 03 Mets at Pirates

Meet the Mets

The Mets staged a comeback victory to beat the Pirates 7-5. Marcus Stroman wasn’t stellar in his Mets debut, but he did help his own cause with a defensive gem that helped avoid a big inning. Wilson Ramos drove in six of the Mets’ seven runs, including a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning.
