Meet the Mets

The Mets fell to the Cubs on Tuesday night, 3-2. Carlos Carrasco had a bounce back start, where he threw five innings of two run ball. However, in the 8th inning, Drew Smith fully embraced the tank as Mike Tauchman hit what would be the game winning homer off him in the 8th inning to give the Cubs the lead. At the plate, the lone Mets’ run of the night came in the first inning as Pete Alonso hit another home run.
