New York Mets outfielder, Yoenis C’espedes, hits a 2RBI single in the second inning off of St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher,Carlos Martinez. C’espedes went 2 for 5 , drivng in 3 runs leading the Mets to a 9-4 victory.
I have uploaded 7 selected images from today’s New York Mets home opener won by the Mets 9-4. The Mets looked very strong in both pitching and hitting. NOAH SYNDERGAAR pitched 6 strong innings, striking out 10 batters, while giving up 6 hits and four runs. Mets relief pitcher ROBERT GSELLMAN faced three batters and struck them all out; and Mets closer, JEURYS FAMILIA, retired the Cardinals in the ninth inning without giving up a hit.
On the hitting side of the ledger, the Mets had 12 hits, with BARNDON NIMMO, YOENIS C’ESPEDES, ADRIA’N GONZA’LEZ, KEVIN PLAWECKI, AND AMED ROSARIO getting multiple hits each. It was a great start for the Mets.
I am now headed for the New York Yankees home opener on April 2.
