Meet the Mets

Following a memorable Hall of Fame induction ceremony, the Mets fell flat in a 2-1 loss to the Blue Jays. The Mets actually led in the game on a Daniel Vogelbach double in the second, which scored Starling Marte for the game’s first run. Toronto ended up tying it in the sixth, and going ahead in the ninth on a Vladimir Guerrero Jr. double off David Robertson. The offense went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left nine on base.
