This isn’t the same old Mets? Prove it. That was the refrain from fans before Friday’s series in San Diego kicked off, and New York got right to work on making good on that promise.
It’s early, sure, but the Mets needed to get Thursday’s loss off their backs as soon as possible. The 13-inning defeat in St. Louis marked the third straight series they had dropped, and with the Padres struggling, New York couldn’t afford to put themselves behind the 8 ball with Jacob deGrom on the hill.
