Final Score: Mets 5, Blue Jays 4 - Hill-arity Ensues

New, comments

Some bad bullpen management was erased by some big bats.

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at New York Mets Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets took the rubber game of their series with the Blue Jays this weekend, winning 5-3 this afternoon at Citi Field. Rich Hill made his first start for the Mets and, for the first five innings, was impressive, not allowing a run and keeping a shockingly low pitch count. The Mets had a 1-0 lead for those first five innings, but Hill was left in for too long, and the Jays scored three runs in the top of the sixth.

Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeil drove in four runs in the bottom of the sixth to put the Mets back on top, 5-3. Despite a rocky eighth inning from Trevor May, Aaron Loup and Edwin Diaz collected the final four outs to cinch the win.

Full recap to follow.
