Meet the Mets
The Mets kept their very slim playoff hopes alive with a win over the Marlins on Tuesday night. Michael Conforto hit two two-run homers, including the game tying one in the 9th inning, before Brandon Nimmo drew a walk off walk in the bottom of the 11th. Jacob deGrom will get the start tonight as he looks to make his final case for the 2019 Cy Young.
Jerry Koosman’s number will be retired during the 2020 season. Meanwhile, Mickey Callaway will be switching his number from 36 to 26.
