I don’t consider myself an optimistic Mets fan. I don’t consider myself a pessimistic Mets man. Like most, I consider myself a realist. However tonight, I genuinely thought the Mets had a shot at coming back until the Phillies got their 13th run of the game. To me, that says great deals about the Mets offense as well as their fire.
- Let’s start with the obvious… McNeil, multi-hit game. “Dallas Corbin Multi-pass”. He hit his fifth double of the young season.
- Wilson Ramos is still hitting the ball really hard. He hit an opposite field line drive home run, his first as a Met. He ended up going 1-3 with 2 RBI’s, Ramos now has 12 RBI’s.
- Cano has shown some flashes of power towards center field. He doubled off of Nick Pivetta in the 5th, putting runners in scoring position. He went 2-5 and his double was his fourth of the season.
- Drew Gagnon was no stud out there but he saved the Mets bullpen a great a deal. Besides a few mistakes, his stuff actually played well against the Phillies.
- Paul Sewald was solid. 2.2 innings of scoreless baseball and he served a great purpose with his multiple innings, as well. The right handers ERA is now at 2.25 in his extremely small sample sized season.
