Can the Mets pick up a Sunday afternoon win and claim the series in Miami?
After spoiling the debut of the Marlins’ new City Connect jerseys on Friday, the Mets watched a walk-off home run ruin their Saturday.
But the Mets, who somehow are still clinging to first place by 2.5 games, can earn a series win with a Sunday matinee victory. At this point, I think we’d all be happy if they can get out of a series without putting anyone else on the IL, too.
A plot twist: Jordan Yamamoto, who was DFA’d by the Marlins in January, will reportedly start against his former team for the Mets on Sunday. We’re all in for a revenge game!
