MetsJunkies Recap: Cookie Retires 18 in a Row in Mets Win

The Mets beat the Giants 6-2 to win their fourth series of the year. With the 6-2 win the Mets improved to 10-4, being the first MLB team to reach 10 wins.

Carlos Carrasco was the star of the show, going 7.2 innings of 2 run ball. At some point Cookie retired 18 Giants in a row, before Yastrzemski broke that streak with a solo shot. Carrasco allowed just 4 hits without allowing a walk, while striking out 7.

Joely Rodriguez got the final out in the eight before Edwin Diaz shut the door in the ninth.

The Mets offense scored runs in different ways today. Lindor and Escobar provided the power. Lindor hit his 4th in a 3 for 5 day. The star shortstop is now hitting. 308 with a .1034 OPS.

Escobar hit his first as a Met as he improved his stats to a .318 average with a .1055OPS. Escobar has been walking a lot, as he added another walk in a 1 for 3 day.

Arguably the biggest hit came of the bat from Mark Canha. After Alonso and Escobar couldn’t come thru with 2nd and 3rd, Canha hit a huge 2 out, 2 rbi single to make it 5-1. McNeil and Nimmo both had a RBI Double in the win.

The Mets will fly to Arizona to face the Diamondbacks tomorrow at 9.40pm. David Peterson will get his second start as he tries to keep his solid start of the year going.

MetsJunkies Recap: Mets Clobber D’Backs in Home Opener

On the festive loaded day the Mets beat the Diamondbacks in their first game at Citi Field in 2022. The day the Mets unveiled the Seaver statue and MLB celebrated Jackie Robinson Day, the Mets didn’t disappoint in a 10-3 victory.

The Mets opened with score with two Pete Alonso sac flies, before the power was shown. Robinson Cano hit his first homerun of the year on Jackie Robinson Day. He took a Davies off speed pitch the other way in the fourth to extend the Mets lead to 3-0.

In the fifth Francisco Lindor added a 2 run bomb to make it 5-0 Mets. It was the first of two homeruns for the Mets star shortstop, who is off to a hot start.

After a run in the seventh, the Mets added 4 to bust the Game open in the eight. Starling Marte hit his first as a Met and Lindor followed with his second of the Game to make it 10-1. Marte and Jankowski collected three hit games in the win.

It was more then enough for Bassitt and the bullpen. Bassitt went 6 innings of one run ball, allowing just 2 hits and 2 walks with 6 strikeouts. Shreve struck out the side in the 7th and Smith followed with a scoreless frame in the eight, before Sean Reid-Foley allowed 2 in the ninth.

Tomorrow, the Mets will face Zac Gallen and the Diamondbacks and try to improve to 7-2 on the season. Carlos Carrasco will try to follow up his great first outing with another good one tomorrow. First pitch is scheduled at 1.10pm.
