Meet the Mets
The Mets and Carlos Carrasco struggled on Tuesday night, falling to the Marlins 6-4. For the second straight game, Carrasco did not last very long in his outing, giving up 4 runs in 3+ innings pitched. Most of the Mets offense on the night came from a Pete Alonso three-run homer, as well as a very interesting balk in the bottom of the eighth inning.
