The Mets continue their post-All-Star break road trip with a three-game stint in Cincinnati.
Down 6-0 after the first inning Sunday, the Mets looked to be on the verge of getting swept by Pittsburgh.
But seven unanswered runs, including a Michael Conforto go-ahead two-run homer in the ninth inning, saved the Mets from series-long embarrassment.
Despite the win, New York’s lead in the NL East is shrinking and currently at just 2.0 games. A successful road series against Cincinnati would be huge for the organization.
