Pete Alonso mets

The dangerous Dodgers visit Citi Field for the weekend. 

The Mets needed wins and got them at the expense of the Nationals. Pete Alonso’s walk-off in the second game of yesterday’s doubleheader gave the Mets some momentum heading into a huge weekend set.

However, after games got rained out on consecutive days against the Nationals, Thursday’s doubleheader makes the Dodgers coming to town a tougher proposition.

The fact Julio Urías will take the ball for LA in Friday’s game doesn’t help.
