Meet the Mets
The Mets played a baseball game on Tuesday night in Baltimore, and it did not go well at all as they lost 10-3. David Peterson struggled for the second straight start, pitching into the third inning. Robert Gsellman, Jacob Barnes, and Drew Smith followed in relief of Peterson and all gave up at least one run. The Mets’ offense on the night was fueled by Pete Alonso, first by a two-run shot in the first inning, and then a solo homer in the top of the ninth. Taijuan Walker will take the mound tonight against Matt Harvey as the Mets look to split the series.
After the game, manager Luis Rojas said that David Peterson will remain a starter in the Mets’ rotation.
