MLB: New York Mets at New York Yankees Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

José Quintana made his second start for the Mets and struggled in their 3-1 loss to the Yankees. Their crosstown rivals had runners on the basepaths all night although Quintana did manage to limit the damage. He was also let down by the defense behind him a bit since one of the runs was unearned. As for the offense, it all dried up from the night before with the lone run coming on a Brandon Nimmo sacrifice fly. It was just another lifeless loss that is pretty typical for the 2023 Mets.
