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.
