Meet the Mets
The Mets swept the doubleheader against the Giants on Tuesday, winning the first game in extra innings, and the second one handily thanks to Max Scherzer. Francisco Lindor had his fingerprints all over both games, driving in the winning run in the first, and scoring and making a fine defensive play in the second. Scherzer dazzled in his first start at Citi Field as a Met, going seven strong innings while striking out 10 batters.
