Mets Banged Up
Michael Conforto left the game in the first grabbing at his leg, and he appears IL bound.
Jeff McNeil left the game in the third with a slightly different problem than what’s been plaguing him this year.
With Marcus Stroman, who hasn’t quite returned to his dominant self since his injury issue, allowing five over 6.0 innings, of course the Mets did not win this game.
On the bright side, we got to see folk hero Patrick Mazeika hit his first career homer, which doubled as his first career hit.

The question now for the Mets is who steps up with all the players injured? The other question is how long can the Bench Mob be a driving force for keeping the Mets in first place.
We shall see.
