A rookie mistake and two bases-loaded whimpers leave the Mets short. Wednesday and maybe beyond.
Three-run deficits. Comebacks from both. Game-ending RBI. These Mets don't surrender. Yet.
Says Rookie of the Year candidate Pete Alonso of his white-hot-since-the-break Mets. But . . .
Pete Alonso scattering seagulls in the top of the sixteenth wasn't enough for the Mets vs. the Giants, alas.
As in, a 14-4 mess Wednesday to sweep a two-game set leaving the Mess (er, Mets) 5-1 since the All-Star break.
It's great entertainment. But it isn't baseball. No matter how engaging Vlad Jr. or charitable winner Pete Alonso.
