Meet the Mets
The Mets’ pitching woes continued on Tuesday night as they fell to the Orioles 9-5. Ariel Jurado made his first start as a Met and pitched four innings and gave up five runs. The Mets were able to chip away with home runs from Andres Gimenez and Robinson Cano, but the Orioles had an answer all game long and kept scoring more runs.
With only 25 games left, time is running out for the Mets to make a run, but there’s hope for another second half surge.
The trade deadline acquisitions made by the Mets sent a strong message to the clubhouse.
The Mets are set to stick with Wilson Ramos as their starting cather.
Steve Cohen is expected to be approved by MLB owners in his quest to purchase the Mets.
Kevin Smith thanked the Mets for his time spent in their organization.
