Alonso & McNeil Help Mets Top Dodgers in Series Opener

Three Mets players had three hits on Monday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Nimmo, McNeil, and Alonso each had three hits to help the Mets take the Dodgers 8-6.

Two of the nine hits provided from the three players was an XBH double by Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil.

Daniel Vogelbach finally hit his first home run of the year, driving the pitch over the left field wall. The home run counted as the first run of the game by the Mets and allowed them to tie the score.

Here’s what Vogelbach had to say about his slow start to the 2023 campaign.

Fransisco Lindor made a great play going up the middle to get Mookie Betts in the second inning.

The Mets caught a break in the seventh when Dodgers pitcher Phil Bickford was called on Balk, allowing the Mets to once again come from behind and tie the game.

After Lindor grounded out for an RBI, putting the Mets up. Alonso provided late inning insurance as he ripped a single into left field, plating Starling Marte for the 8-6 lead.

Adam Ottavino would pick up his second save of the season, as the Mets bullpen continues to reward Showalter with their stellar pitching.

Tomorrow’s game two will feature a pitching matchup between right-hander Tylor Megill and veteran left-hander Clayton Kershaw.
