Meet the Mets
The Mets continued their winning ways on Tuesday night, beating the Cardinals 3-0. Chris Bassitt continued the stretch of strong starting pitching for the Mets, tossing six scoreless innings. The Mets offense was powered by a third inning rally where they scored two runs, as well as an insurance run in the top of the ninth. The Mets will go for the sweep of the Cardinals tonight as they square off against a familiar face in Steven Matz.
