MLB: New York Mets at New York Yankees Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

Behind the bat of Pete Alonso and the arm of Justin Verlander, the Mets beat the Yankees 9-3 on Tuesday night. Alonso drove in first Mets run with an RBI single to start the game, and then hit two homers, a three-run and solo shot, to provide just about all the offense the Mets would need. On the mound, Verlander continued his recent stretch of brilliance, tossing six shutout innings to set the team up for a victory.
