The Mets turn to Tylor Megill to get their first second-half win.

Things got chippy on Friday night when Marcus Stroman and Pirates first baseman John Nogowski spent a few minutes…sharing recipes and suggestions for local diners. Unfortunately for the Mets, at the end of the night, it was Pittsburgh who started the second half with a win.

The Mets will look to get back on track Saturday night with Tylor Megill on the mound. The Pirates counter with Wil Crowe. We’ll see if the animated side conversations of Friday carry over to the weekend as well.
