Mets 2, Nats 1 (F/12)
Wilmer Flores not only played good defense and had the Mets’ first RBI, but he also lead off the bottom of the 12th with a walk-off dinger. Unreal. The crowd went ballistic for him, which is great. He was treated like shit by this organization (duhh) and the fans know it. I liked what the fans did and loved what Flores did.
Meanwhile Harvey (who was left in too long) let up 1 run and didn’t get the win. SHOCKING. Well, no more excuses, since this was the last game without Cespedes.
Lost in the mix: Robles’ amazing play and overall perfect inning. Same for Familia. Clippard got the job done in the 8th but walked a couple in the 9th. Learn when to yank, Terry! Terry’s hook is always misplaced.
Can we get some offense? Can we score runs for deGrom today? Enter Cespedes.
