Meet the Mets

Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue, Daily News,

Carlos Carrasco was excellent in his start last night, the first time that’s happened in any of his starts this season. He spoke about the outing, which also earned Buck Showalter’s praise.

Pete Alonso hit an impressive opposite-field home run in the win, his league-leading 19th home run of the year.

The Gary Sánchez experiment is over, as the Mets designated the catcher for assignment when they reinstated Tomás Nido from the injured list.

Speaking of catchers, Omar Narváez started a rehab assignment last night with the Brooklyn Cyclones.
