The Mets (31-33, 6.0 GB in the NL East) picked up a win against the Rockies on Saturday, 5-3, to even the three-game series at a game apiece.
The rubber match will be on Sunday at 1:10 p.m. at Citi Field. It will be Noah Syndergaard (3-4, 4.83 ERA) going up against Jeff Hoffman (1-2, 7.29 ERA) on the mound.
Here's what went down on Saturday in case you missed it:
After belting his 21st homer of the season last night, Mickey Callaway praised Pete Alonso for "performing like an All-Star."
Here are the takeaways from last night's win, including Steven Matz' 10-strikeout performance that set the tone for the Mets.
Callaway was ejected in the fifth inning last night for arguing balls and strikes. The incident came after a Dominic Smith at-bat that he wasn't too happy about.
The statuses of Robinson Cano, Justin Wilson, and Brandon Nimmo were all updated yesterday before the game.
From Triple-A to the Mets, a bromance has been created between Alonso and Smith. And SNY's Anthony McCarron put together an oral history to explain how it all came about.
