With two outs in the third inning, the Mets didn't waver against the Marlins on Friday and started off the second half of the season on a positive note.
Jeff McNeil started right where he left off the first half of the season, singling to center field. Then back-to-back walks from JD Davis and Pete Alonso, respectively, juiced the bases against Miami pitcher Caleb Smith for Wilson Ramos. He delivered.
Ramos kept the rally going and had a hard-hit grounder to the left side of the infield. Marlins shortstop Miguel Rojas lunged to his right on the play, but Ramos' shot had too much on it to haul it in.
The single for Ramos gave him his 42nd and 43rd RBI of the season, as McNeil and Davis scored. Ramos recorded 70 total RBI all of last season, which he split between the Rays and Phillies.
