Mets Game Notes

Another game of which I witnessed little. Seems I’ve had other (better?) things to do this weekend. My apologies.

Bartolo Colon was beat up again, but hung in there long enough to eat up innings. The Mets offense was again ineffective, going 3-for-13 with RISP and leaving 8 runners on base. But, there’s Travis d’Arnaud continuing to hit the ball after his Las Vegas stint under the guidance of Wally Backman. Rumor has it, Wilmer Flores is mashing the ball out there, too. Must be the thin air.

Fill me in on what I “missed” in the comments. Thanks.
