No MLB team this season has been better at bouncing back from losses than the New York Mets. That has helped position them for their first NL West title since 2015, and after a loss last night to the Miami Marlins, that resilience will need to show itself in an important game tonight.
Next week, New York might be rooting for Miami, as the Marlins host the Braves to close out the regular season. Tonight, their focus will be on beating them to at least enter this weekend’s massive matchup in Atlanta no worse than tied for first, following last night’s 6-4 loss to the Marlins.
It was a bad time for Carlos Carrasco to have one of his shortest starts of the season, as he exited after only three innings with four runs and six hits allowed and the Mets trailing 4-0.
MLB RBI leader Pete Alonso cranked a three-run homer, his 40th of the season, in the bottom of the fourth to make it a one-run game, but the Mets were unable to come all the way back, as Miami’s bullpen backed up six solid innings by Pablo Lopez to close out the win.
