The Mets had the lead again in Toronto, but this time, they kept it to the end as the split the two-game series with the Blue Jays after a 6-3 victory on Wednesday night.
Things you should know about tonight's game...
1) It was a big fifth inning for the Mets, who entered the frame down a run. They managed to put up a five-spot thanks to Todd Frazier starting things off with a two-run homer to center field. Then, Jose Bautista, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Michael Conforto each had themselves RBI singles to make it a 6-2 game by the end of the inning.
2) This was a much better outing from Corey Oswalt, who had a rough go in Miami last week. The 6-foot-5 righty lasted four innings in his second career start, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out two and walking one.
3) The big story on Tuesday was the Mets' bullpen imploding once again to cost Zack Wheeler another no-decision. However, the bullpen came through on Wednesday, especially in Seth Lugo who got the win. Lugo lasted three innings, allowing one run on three hits while striking out two. Jerry Blevins, Robert Gsellman, and Jeurys Familia finished the eighth and ninth innings without allowing any danger on base.
4) With the win, the Mets return home on a high note for an 11-game homestand before the All-Star break.
The Mets (34-49) kick off that homestand with another interleague matchup, this time a three-game set with the Rays (43-43). Jacob deGrom will go for the Mets while Ryne Stanek gets the ball for the Rays...at least to start off the game.
