Mets Game Notes

I missed watching this game due to a nighttime work event, so please post your notes in the comments. Thank you.

I noticed that the Mets struck out “only” 7 times — not bad considering they were shut out. However, also noticed that they didn’t draw one walk. So I’m guessing that Alvarez was throwing a ton of strikes, and/or the Mets were overly aggressive?

Next Mets Game

Mets look to avoid a sweep by sending Zack Wheeler to the mound against Tom Koehler. Game time is 12:40 ET.
