Francisco Lindor New York Mets

The Mets won a game yesterday. If they win today, that’s two in a row.

Michael Conforto came off the bench to be the hero for the Mets on Saturday night, cranking a three-run homer as the Mets beat the Nationals. Marcus Stroman went six strong innings and the bullpen held on.

That’s right. The Mets won a game.


Sunday’s matinee offers another opportunity for the Mets to win a game. Their playoff chances are next to zero at this point so we’re watching for any glimmer of hope… or, to make a few bucks.

Who will be the hero on Sunday?
