Neon Moment of the Week: Yes! He McCann
The New York Mets have been struggling of late. While we all anticipated the regulars being activated may lead the team to take off, the opposite happened.
The Mets had struggled mightily this past week. Against division opponents, the Mets went 7-10 with the offense primarily to blame. Simply put, they just weren’t scoring runs leaving their pitching high and dry.
That was the case on June 29. Entering the top of the seventh, the Mets were down 3-0. For a team who scored more than three just three times over an 11 game stretch, that meant the game was all but lost.
That was until two got on in front of James McCann, who delivered his biggest moment as a Met hitting a game tying three run homer. That sparked a four run rally leading the Mets to right the ship and win a much needed divisional game against the Atlanta Braves.
Before last night's three-run shot, James McCann's last homer was on 6/6 in San Diego. From 6/7-6/28 (62 PA), he collected just four XBH (all doubles) and had a .071 ISO. He needed this and the #Mets needed it, desperately. #LGM @Metsmerized (via @Mets) pic.twitter.com/06aRuKAAbf

This has been part of a big month of June for McCann. In his 26 games, he hit .288/.341/.500 with five doubles, four homers, and 16 RBI.
McCann came through big in June when the Mets needed it most. That was especially the case with his game tying homer, and that is why it’s the Mets Neon Moment of the Week!
