MLB: New York Mets at San Francisco Giants Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

Thomas Szapucki got called up to start the series finale against the Giants and it did not go well to say the least. He did not make it through the second inning and was charged with nine runs before exiting. The good news for the Mets is Francisco Lindor stayed hot with another two hits including a home run. The bad news is that to add injury to insult Jeff McNeil had to leave the game after crashing into the wall to make a catch.
